Teen Literature Festival

Cork County Council’s Library and Arts Service are delighted to announce a series of Teen Literature, writing, and health advice events offered to secondary school and Youth reach students in Cork County. This exciting new venture to engage young people in Cork County with their local library service will run throughout November 2021.

As well as the One County, One Book programme with reading, art and song-writing competitions for Teens featuring the book All Our Hidden Gifts by Cork-born author Caroline O’Donoghue there will also be events and some lively discussion from young adult authors Louise O’Neill, Adiba Jaigirdar, Ciara Smyth and William Hussey.

Events are funded by Creative Ireland and Cork County Library’s new LGBTQI+ literature programme, Words Will Change Worlds. Books have been sent to Transition Year students in secondary schools and Youthreach groups in Cork County.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
