Keane on books... smashing line-ups for online literary festivals
Lighter days are on the way, not least in the form of literary festivals. The season starts next month with Mountains to Sea. Usually held in Dún Laoghaire, this time it's going online but will be no less vibrant as the smashing line-up - Noam Chomsky, Maggie O'Farrell, Rebecca Solnit, Raven Leilani et al - demonstrates. I'm very excited at the prospect of interviewing Max Porter, author of the celebrated Grief is the Thing with Feathers and more recently The Death of Francis Bacon. Running over the weekend of March 27/28, find details of the programme and tickets at mountainstosea.ie.
