New Voices


New Voices features brand new voices in children’s books. Tune in to enjoy several short, 5 minute extracts read by debut Irish authors and illustrators from their brand new titles.

Usually only enjoyed by those attending Children’s Books Ireland’s annual International Conference, this is a special opportunity to enjoy a reading from a new voice at the beginning of their children’s books career.

The New Voices YouTube Premiere event will stream at 4pm on Friday September 18th for Culture Night.
