This year’s Red Line Book Festival takes place from 14-19 October.

As part of the festival, on Wednesday 15th October at 7pm, author Lisa Marie Griffith will be visiting Tallaght Library to talk about her book ‘Stones of Dublin: a history of Dublin in ten buildings‘.

Behind the façades of the city’s most historic buildings, is the story of Dublin. The buildings are Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Trinity College Dublin, the Old Parliament House (Bank of Ireland), City Hall, Kilmainham Gaol, St James’ Gate Brewery, the GPO, the Abbey Theatre and Croke Park. Bringing together the story of these landmark buildings takes us on a wonderful journey through the shifting social, political and cultural history of Ireland’s capital.

Dr. Lisa Marie Griffith is from Waterford. She studied history at University College Dublin obtained a PhD from Trinity College. She became fascinated by the history of Dublin and throughout her studies worked as a walking tour guide in Dublin. She also presented a series on Anna Livia (now Dublin City FM) for two years on Dublin History. She taught history and is now Coordinator of the Cultural and Heritage Studies Programme at the National Print Museum in Dublin.
