The sixth edition of The Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas takes place June 9th to 11th.
Each year we gather together fiction writers, historians, journalists, broadcasters, filmmakers, photographers, war correspondents and musicians for a riveting weekend of dialogue and discussion. Over 60 speakers will descend on the idyllic village of Borris, County Carlow for a three-day gathering designed to inspire. A few hundred lucky readers will come to listen, mingle and exchange ideas.
The full line-up has now been announced, and includes Florence Welch, David Simon, Mary Robinson, Maggie O’Farrell, Geoff Dyer, Roddy Doyle, Jeffrey Eugenides, Angela Scanlan, Joanna Trollope, Eimear McBride, Colm Tóibín, Edmund White, Dominic West, Sebastian Barry, Laura Lippman, Lemn Sissay, Claire Keegan, Maajid Nawaz, Michael Harding, Patrick Magee, Jo Berry, Andrew Maxwell & many more.
