Kate O’Brien Weekend
22nd – 24th February 2013
Theme: The Best of Times – the Worst of Times
The Kate O'Brien Weekend will take place in Limerick from the 22nd to the 24th February 2013. The theme for the 2013 weekend is "The Best of Times – the Worst of Times" taken from the opening lines of Charles Dicken's novel about the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities.
The Kate O’Brien Weekend brings together readers and contemporary writers in a relaxed environment to discuss ideas, styles and topics that make up the work of today’s writers. It is an invaluable opportunity for the solitary reader to meet and discuss current writing and to interact directly with writers they may or may not have read.
Limerick’s annual literary event continues to be popular even after 29 years and has over the years extended its programme to include opera, music and art. It is an important element of Limerick's cultural calendar and is organised by passionate readers of contemporary literature.
It provides a chance for learning and questioning and gives new and established writers an opportunity to discuss their work in direct contact with audiences.
