I received an email from the embassy today informing me of an event in Ireland. The brochure states that this is the "world's largest floating Book Fair with over 6,000 titles at bargain prices". There's a volunteer crew representing 45 countries, and an exhibition by local artists. I don't know much about it, but thought I would pass along the information. We are planning to check it out this weekend or next.
Dublin 14th-24th May 2009 Sir John Rogerson's Quay
Cork 3rd-12th July 2009 Horgan's Quay
Look for a HUGE ship!
