Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival

March 28th to 31st 2019

One of our guests at the 2018 festival, Ali Smith described 'the act of storytelling as an act of profound generosity'. It always has been; story is an ancient form that will tell us everything we need to know about the contemporary world.

The theme of the 2019 Festival will be 'Speaking with Strangers' and in the sharing of stories the individual selves we all are, meet and transform in the telling, into something open and communal. In 2019 Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival is thrilled to welcome some truly gifted storytellers who will share with us their worlds of poetry, fiction and non- fiction.
