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:

Children's Event

Bannie McPartlin

Thursday 27th June @ 3.30pm 

Suitable for ages 9/10 - 12 years

Jeremy, Johnny J, Walker, Sumo and Charlie are about to have the summer of their lives. They've all just finished primary school and are looking forward to weeks of holiday freedom before they head off to their new schools. But they soon realise it's not all going to be riding their bikes, making rope swings in the woods and climbing trees.
Johnny's mum is ill, really ill - and Jeremy decides there is only one way to save her. A way that might just involve a robbery ... And by the end of it all - or perhaps somewhere in the middle - they will be The Fearless Five.
And this will be a summer they will never, ever forget ...
COMPETITION DETAILS - Tell us who is your favourite member of 'The Fearless Five' and why...
It can be funny or serious - whatever the reason, let us know, but keep it short (no really long answers please!)
You can enter before the day and pop your reasons into us or you can enter on the day to be in with a chance to win

Friday 8th January @ 7.30pm (time tbc)

Soon to be a film, 'Harvesting' is the story of 2 teenagers - spiky, quick-witted and sharp Sammy living in Dublin & warm and conscientious Nico from Moldova. When they are thrown together in a Dublin brothel in a horrific twist of fate, a peculiar and important bond is formed . . .

This is a novel about a flourishing but hidden world, thinly concealed beneath a veneer of normality. It’s about the failings of polite society, the cruelty that can exist in apparently homely surroundings, the bluster of youth and the often appalling weakness of adults.

'Harvesting' is heartbreaking and funny, gritty, raw and breathtakingly beautiful.
