Ireland’s biggest & most exhilarating arts festival for Young Adults, in association with Listowel Writers Week, is set to go on line – 24th, 25th & 26th November.

Festival organiser Helen Lane spoke to Louise on Spin Now this morning.

Ireland’s young adults are in for a treat - an exciting festival line-up of poets, motivational speakers, fiction writers, singers, film-makers and journalists sharing the best of literature across secondary schools nationwide.

And the good news is that all events are FREE on our new website https://yabookfest.ie/.

There are two educational presentations on Leaving Cert Paper One from English teaching experts Frances Rocks and Kevin Mc Dermott.

One of the highlights of this year's festival is a Presidential address from President Michael D. Higgins on our theme of 'hope'.

The programme also includes advice on creativity from Young Offenders star Shane Casey and Minister for Education Norma Foley. Another highlight will be a lively discussion by our St. John’s Focus Group on recent books they have read.
