Here at Liberties Press, we're big fans of this time of year; summer may be gone but we have autumn to look forward to; autumn colours, cosy clothes and even cosier nights in with a good book. However, should you deign to leave the comfort of your sofa at some point (and we recommend that you do!) you should make your plans early and book some tickets for this year's Dublin Book Festival, taking place in the beautiful Smock Alley Theatre.
Alongside some other brilliant Irish authors and publishers, Liberties Press has a whole range of fiction, non-fiction and children's authors speaking at this year's festival. Have a browse below, or check out the Dublin Book Festival website for full details of all of their wonderful events!
