Events

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:
