Temple Bar is the place to be for book-lovers today.
The 11th annual Dublin Book Festival continues today with the likes of workshops, interviews and readings all taking place.
Most of today's events are based at the Smock Alley Theatre but the Botanic Gardens and the RDS Library are also hosting some.
"The festival brings together Irish writers and publishers and we want to bring them to meet the audiences", says Programme Director Julianne Mooney.
"There's such a wealth of work coming out from Irish publishers and our Irish writers and this is really a celebration of books of all kind".
