We love hosting author events in Bridge Street Books & have been delighted in the past to welcome such celebrities as Derek Landy (Skulduggery Pleasant), Rebecca Miller and Donal Ryan (The Spinning Heart). We have also welcomed The Gruffalo and Maisy Mouse, held a cookery demonstration by Catherine Fulvio & had the children of Wicklow hunt for Wally all over the town.

It is always a pleasure to welcome local authors Emma Hannigan, Melissa Hill & Jackie Burke & more recently Alan Timmons (Here in No Place), Oona Frawley (Flight) and Micheal Delahunty (This is Wicklow) to BSB to launch their books.

Please see below a list of upcoming and exciting events which we will be hosting:

We are delighted to be part of the Wicklow Regatta Festival this year, co-hosting Robert Grogan's fantastic one-man show 'Strolling through Ulysses'. 
You do not need to have read Ulysses to enjoy the show - it is merely a fantastic evening's entertainment.  Whether you always wanted to read Ulysses, but just can't get your head around it; maybe you've read and really enjoyed it or did you just always want to know what it was all about? Then this show is for you - and it's FREE!
So, what is it all about...?
'Strolling Through Ulysses!' is a one-man show that tells the fun-filled story of Bloomsday - June 16th 1904 - the iconic day around which James Joyce’s Ulysses is based.  Written and performed by Robert Gogan 'Strolling Through Ulysses!' guides you through the curious events and quirky characters of Ulysses, in a humorous, entertaining and informative manner, with extracts from the novel which best illustrate the various aspects of Joyce’s writing.
