23rd Cúirt Festival

The Cúirt International Festival of Literature 2008 takes place in Galway from April 22-27.
The theme of this, the 23rd festival, is that the authors involved have been eye witnesses to history, from Chechnya to Northern Ireland.

Among those taking part are Asne Seierstad, author of "The Book Seller of Kabul"; anti-Apartheid campaigner Breyten Breytenbach; and former adviser to Barack Obama, Pulitzer Prize winner Samantha Power

As part of this year's festival programme, the Cúirt Literary Tour will trace literature in Galway through the years, while there will also be special readings for young people.
