The programe for the 2009 Frank O'Connor Festival in Cork has been announced. See Munster Literature's site here.
I can only stay 3 days this year (sob) as I have to dash off on the Saturday for my Clifden Arts Week reading (Cork to Clifden by car with a, by then, 4 month old baby - urgh).
BUT! I will get to see Simon Van Booy read (I am reading his book for review at the moment and am totally lost in it); also Billy O'Callaghan and Petina Gappah.
And my book Nude is being launched there, in the City Library, on the Friday at 4pm - all welcome!
