Dalkey Book Festival 2014 takes place from 19th until 22nd June. There are many literary figures that you may be interested in going to see, such as Joseph O’Connor, Salman Rushdie, John Banville, Apres Match, Sebastian Barry and many, many more. However, the person that is of particular interest to us at the moment is Lenny Abrahamson, director of ‘Adam and Paul’, ‘What Richard Did’, ‘Frank’ and, of course, ‘Garage’, one of the six films on the syllabus for Leaving Cert 2015.
Here is a wonderful opportunity to hear him in person. He will be speaking to Sinead Gleeson about the films he has made and adapting books for screen, including his forthcoming film of Emma O’Donoghue’s best-seller ‘Room’.
This interview will take place at 12:30 on Sunday 22nd June at the Festival Marquee. Tickets cost €10 and can be purchased on the Dalkey Festival website.
