The Libravian

Meet Lynn, your resident book-reader and all-round story enthusiast, as she takes audiences through the highs and lows of book cataloguing and introduces us to her favourite books on bravery, by some of Ireland's finest authors.

Lynn has been quietly adventuring through shelves of other authors' books for years, surrounding herself with some truly courageous characters seven days a week. How can she tell her own brave story? What if she fails? And can it all be done without making Mary mad?

‘The Libravian’ explores themes of courage and identity, celebrating brilliant books and diverse stories through big hearted physical comedy. Join Lynn for a mighty mix of book cataloguing, big hair and some occasional, staff-approved laughing.

Lynn will be reading from:

  • A Dangerous Crossing by Jane Mitchell
  • The Wordsmith by Patricia Forde
  • The Best Medicine by Christine Hamill
  • The Deepest Breath by Meg Grehan

'The Libravian' was commissioned by Baboró International Arts Festival for Children through an Arts Council Commission Award, in association with Children's Books Ireland, The O'Brien Press, and Little Island Books.

Please note Friday 15th October performances are at Moycullen Bookshop
