November Update - Leonard Cohen Event Dublin 2014

Post by Paula McCann » Fri Nov 22, 2013 2:44 pm

Good morning friends from a sunny Dublin.

I am delighted to report the draft programme for the 2014 Leonard Cohen Event is coming together nicely with the three core elements of the Spoken Word, Open Mic and the concerts.

The venue will be booked before the end of this month and it will be in the city centre. When the contract is signed the accommodation listings will be posted so folks can look at hotels/guest houses etc. in the vicinity of the venue.

Dublin is a UNESCO City of Literature: in fact, the Dublin Book Festival has just taken place. Leonard refers to Dublin as the "city of poets and singers" and so to honour our literary tradition and to acknowledge our man as a poet and writer, we have a very strong Spoken Word line-up for the Event.

John MacKenna - novelist/playwright/radio producer/he did a whole series of radio interviews with Leonard called "How the heart approaches what it yearns" (on the Files),
Leif Bodnarchuk- writer/blogger/technician on the Old Ideas tour,
Gerard Smyth - poet and literary editor of The Irish Times,
Dermot Bolger - novelist/poet/playwright,
The Poetry Divas.

A little to whet your appetite and lots more to come.

Remember, the early bird discount registration fee of €130 will finish at the end of November.

Have a great weekend.
