Listowel Writers Week is a buzz, and once again the selection of top literary names is impressive. Now running for nearly 50 years, and having previously welcomed the likes of Kazuo Ishiguro and Alan Cumming, Listowel Writers' Week has established itself as a hugely engaging and entertaining week for readers and writers alike, complete with workshops, walks, panels, performances and more.
Hot Press Picks: Catch Christine Dwyer Hickey, who recently released The Narrow Land, which focuses on painter Edward Hopper's wife Jo: it's a beautifully written novel.
