Brought to you by Dublin City Libraries and axis Ballymun, this multi-platform project is a celebration and a recognition of the city libraries and throughout the pandemic, we re-discovered the power of literature, music, art and culture as sources of entertainment and wellbeing.
Dublin's Reading The Nightmare Club: We Dare You to Join!
This is a city-wide children's reading promotion in conjunction with UNESCO City of Literature, Dublin City Public Libraries and Little Island publishers and takes place from mid- January to mid-March 2013. We are asking children all over Dublin to join Annie Graves’ Nightmare Club by reading the short scary stories in the Nightmare Club series.Image: Jason ClarkeThe titles in the series are Help! My Brother's a Zombie, Mirrored, A Dog's Breakfast, Guinea Pig Killer, Frankenkids and The Wolfling's Bite. The books are short, fun, brilliantly-illustrated and do not have to be read in any order. There will be author visits to Dublin City Public Libraries as well as city-centre events.
