“The Keeper is far too good…A new star of the fantasy genre — I couldn’t sleep until I finished it.” – Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl series

Calling all Harry Potter fans! Get a sneak peek at the newest beloved children’s fantasy novel in Ireland, in advance of its U.S. release.

Irish playwright and Fulbright Scholar Darragh Martin (An Air Balloon Across Antarctica, The Map of Lost Things and Why Pluto is a Planet) joins us to share from his first fantasy novel for children, The Keeper, inspired by his childhood daydreams about the Dublin DART traveling somewhere far beyond his regular stop at Howth Junction. Facing streams of snow snakes, shadowfish and magical mountains, three very different children have to decide whether or not they can trust each other—and the mysterious book of magic that’s leading them—before it’s too late to get the last train home.

After the reading, engage in some crafts and make your very own magic book.
