The 2007 Festival concentrates on the various dimensions of Islands in Literature. The theme Talking about Islands, A propos des Iles... will be the opportunity to pay a warm tribute to Michel Déon, a famous and prolific writer, and member of the Académie Française, who has been resident in Ireland for more than 30 years.
Guests of the festival include José Luis de Juan, Irène Frain, John Banville, Chantal Thomas, Franzobel, Henri Lopes, Bríd Ní Mhóráin, Jean Lemieux, Theo Dorgan, Peter Sheridan, and Jean Raspail.

In conjunction with Bookcrossing, the weekend will also witness the "release" of 100 English and French books all over Dublin.
