Way with Words is back for its second year.  It is curated by the Arts and Library Services of Wicklow County Council.  Way with Words features renowned Irish and European authors who will be present in Blessington and Arklow Libraries from April 4th to 13th.  There is something for everyone and also opportunities for schools.  The line up includes Marina Carr, Arnold Thomas Fanning, Éanna Ni Lamnhna with broadcaster Martin King, Curabinny, Peter Donnelly, the Mobile Music Machine, John Banville and many more.  All events are free.  The aim of this Festival is to reach out to the public encouraging the use of libraries as important community and cultural hubs.  Sessions will allow the public engage in questions and answers with authors.  Our line up includes treasured Irish authors who are both engaging and demonstrate excellence in their field.  This programme is a continued strand of the Culture and Creativity Strategy for Wicklow County Council.
