Graiguenamanagh Tourism are pleased to announce the 8th Annual Graiguenamanagh ‘Town of Books’ Festival, which will take place in Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny, on Friday 17th, Saturday 18th, and Sunday 19th September 2010. For one weekend in September Graiguenamanagh will be transformed literally (no pun intended) into a ‘Town of Books’.
Whether you are looking for a special book, out of date and out of print, first edition or author signed, or whether you are looking for bargain books at great prices, then Graiguenamanagh ‘Town of books’ is a must for you. And this is only the beginning. The establishment of this festival has resulted in a permanent antiquarian bookmarket being established in Graigue, and more bookshops are being planned for the future. As well as all that, the weekend will feature lots of music and entertainment and a brilliant food and craft market on the Sunday.
The above was lifted from the booktown website here: http://www.booktownireland.com/index.php which was not working properly when I visited tonight. This event, now in its eighth year, sees book dealers from all over Ireland setting up shop in Graiguenamanagh for the weekend and is well worth dropping in on if you’re in the South East.
