This year’s Aspects Festival is happening from 22 September to 2 October.
Aspects Festival has always been committed to promoting Irish writing from well-known authors, as well as showcasing local and emerging talent and this year is no different. With events celebrating historic writing, politics, sports and history, there are plenty of events on offer across all genres of literature including book launches, new writing and discussions.
Author Malachi O’Doherty makes a return to Aspects to discuss his latest book and the Festival is delighted to welcome back best-selling authors Martina Devlin and Jan Carson to talk about their latest works. Jan and Martina will be facilitating some exciting writing workshops aimed at aspiring writers, and local crime-writers Anthony J. Quinn and Jason Johnson will be launching their new books at the Festival.
A very special Aspects extra event will take place on 9 October. Just after the main programme, Phil Coulter will appear at Bangor Castle to talk about his song-writing, his memoir and his life.
Events for young readers and writers include the ever-popular Woodland Chew and Yarn at Clandeboye Estate along with book-themed yoga, storytelling and creating your own animated story at the Tablets and Text workshop.
Aspects will run from 22 September – 2 October at various locations around Bangor. The full programme and tickets will be available nor at http://www.aspectsfestival.com
