Cork World Book Fest 2023 at Triskel

Posted on:
The background colour is yellow with block text in the top left hand corner saying Cork World Book Fest 2023. On the right is a graphic showing a book open flat with half the pages curling upwards and figures of trees, hot air balloons, clock towers, clouds, birds, paper aeroplanes popping out. The colours in the graphics are cream red, gold, turquoise blue.

Cork World Book Fest is a highlight of the literary calendar in Cork, bringing an extraganza of books and writers to the city each April. The fest incorporates UNESCO World Literature Day on 23 April, giving us the perfect excuse to celebrate all that’s wonderful about books and writers and reading.

This year, there are 7 events happening here in Triskel:

Most events are free – €5 for the Joseph O’Connor and Paul Muldoon events (or €8 if you get a ticket for both). Book now to secure your favourite seat!

You will get to enjoy so many more literary events in Cork City Library, on Grand Parade and Tuckey Street from 18-23 April. Check out the full programme of events or pick up a brochure in Triskel or in the libraries.
