Rostrevor Literature Festival
After a year of dreaming about it and months of planning and nerve-wrecking wait for funding, the international village of Rostrevor in county Down, Northern Ireland, will hold its very first literature festival. The Kilbroney Community Association's sub-committee is made up of a bunch of readers, writers and enthusiasts, lead by William (Billy) K. Graham, political journalist.
They got support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Newry and Mourne Council, so the event will take place on Saturday 26th November from 10am - 5 pm in the Kilbroney Integrated Primary School. About 200 people are expected and I feel honoured that I was invited to read, in the circle of these great writers and poets.
