Dublin: One City, One Book
Photo by enboheme
Every April, the Dublin City Council asks Dublin residents to read a book and spend the month discussing it. Though this might sound more like a homework assignment than a leisure activity, the free activities and exhibitions that the Council promotes throughout the month provide a nice pay-off.
Cultural events and activities in April include dramatic readings, lectures, and the opportunity to meet the author himself. All events are free, though tickets are required for some events—and showing up early to avoid disappointment is a must. So get to your chosen locations early to avoid traveling a long, long way for nothing.
