READ DL is back


The READ DL 2018 committee are excited to bring Donegal its next collective reading adventure from 18thJanuary to the 1st March 2018.

This year’s chosen title is ‘A Monster Calls’ by the twice Carnegie Medal-winning author Patrick Ness. This novel explores love, loss and hope in a way that is deep and thought provoking. Told through the eyes of thirteen year old Conor, readers will be captivated by the central character’s strength and courage.

This years launch will take place at Central Library, Letterkenny on Friday 2nd February at 7pm.

READ DL is all about coming together. The objective of this project is to get as many people reading a book from a particular author at the same time, building not only a sense of community but also promoting and valuing the importance of literacy within our communities.  The team have put together a website this year which is packed with everything you need to know.
