Rathgar Children’s Book festival 2019

Tell me a story!

Tell me again!

At any given moment, all over the world, hundreds of millions of people will be engaged in what is one of the most familiar forms of human activity. In one way or another they will have their attention focused on one of those strange sequences of mental images which we call a story. (Christopher Booker The Seven Basic Plots)

In the Rathgar Book Festival for Children we invite you to join with us in thinking about the value of story telling, through reading books, and through a range of workshops
