The Irish Writers' Centre is celebrating 25 years since its founding with a world record-beating public reading!
Over 100 writers will participate in a marathon public reading which will commence at 10.00 am on Friday June 15th and finish at 2.00 pm on Saturday, June 16th which is Bloomsday.
If they succeed they will make a Guinness World Record.
It will be launched by Senator David Norris and the readers will include Seamus Heaney.
The readings will continue for 28 hours continuously, and will be open to the public. It will also be live-streamed so they will be reading for the world in every sense.
They can accommodate about five more readings in the middle of the night, so if any writer would like to participate and is happy to read at 3.00 or 4.00 am (when the American Continent will be tuned in) let them know straight away –
So send the title of your book that you would like to read from, and most importantly the ISBN. Only authors reading from their own books are recognised by Guinness World Records...
