Zagreb Book Festival 2016 - Ireland the promised land

Museum of Arts and Crafts, Zagreb

This year’s Zagreb Book Festival: Ireland the Promised Land puts a spotlight on Ireland’s rich literary tradition. With more than 40 events and 80 Croatian and international authors, many of the Festivals readings and discussions will look at the numerous similarities between Ireland and Croatia through the prism of literature. Featured Irish authors include playwright, novelist and poet Sebastian Barry, novelist, photographer and poet Gerard Donovan, crime novelist Jane Casey and children’s writer and Laureate na nÓg (Children’s Laureate) Eoin Colfer.

Part of the Literature Programme devised by Poetry Ireland and supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme
