Book Release

Book Release

This April will see Dublin festival ‘One City, One Book’ promoting Roddy Doyle’s Barrytown Trilogy of The Commitments, The Snapper, The Van. On St Patrick’s day, CCI will set free 30 books in French and English from the trilogy. The books will be available for collection from CCI’s Médiathèque. We invite you to collect your book, read it at your leisure and then release it in April into the Parisian landscape for someone else to read. You decide where you leave the book, whether it’s on Pont Neuf or a quiet park bench in the Luxembourg Gardens, we ask you to photograph the book in situ and to email the photo to assistant@centreculturelirlandais.com or to upload it directly onto our Facebook/ Twitter page. That way, you will help us to introduce Paris to the trilogy and we’ll be two Cities reading one book.
