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. Visit http://www.readdonegal.com.

Stay up to date by following READ DL on twitter and instragram using @readdonegal and on facebook using @readdlsocial.

    Brilliant Book and well done to all involved in the project. Some task getting so many books to schools and communities in such a small space of time. Great Project

      I loved the book as well. Sad book and I recommend reading it with tissues. I loved the illustrations. I highly recommend people read this novel.
