The Los Gatos-Listowel Writers’ Week 2016, will take place from October 6-10, 2016 at several venues in the charming town of Los Gatos, California.
Mirroring the format of the Listowel festival, the program will be devoted to bringing together writers and audiences at unique and innovative events in the historic and intimate surroundings of Los Gatos.
Headquartered at C.B. Hannegan’s Bar & Restaurant, located on the edge of town, venues will include bookstores and coffee shops, and the Los Gatos Theater, with the bulk of readings and workshops taking place at the state-of-the-art Los Gatos Library.
The festival will showcase writers who offer substantive artistic content and inspiration to a diverse audience by way of readings and workshops. Promoting writers, poets and artists from Ireland and the U.S., with an emphasis on advancing education across all age groups, the festival seeks to perpetuate a sense of literary connection to Ireland.
