We’re firmly in my favourite time of year. Autumn brings several family birthdays, the cream of new publications, the Dublin Theatre Festival and awards season.

The shortlists for this year’s An Post Irish Book Awards will be announced in the GPO on October 20 (a couple of days after the Booker Prize winner is announced) and the An Post winners will be revealed at a glamorous affair in Dublin’s Convention Centre next month. It’s three years since the book community got together in real life for this event, so the excitement is already at Toy Show levels. I’ll keep you posted.
