Dyslexia affects thousands of Irish people including my own little daughter. Please, if you have time, support Dyslexia Ireland by coming to the following event on Thursday October 21st.

People who love to read and share the pleasure of reading with others in their book clubs understand the joy that can come from reading. However, people with dyslexia do not often experience the joy of reading for pleasure. They can, given the right opportunities, which you can now help to provide.

To mark Dyslexia Awareness Month this October, the Dyslexia Association of Ireland is hosting a fundraising book reading called A Novel Idea … Authors Read for Dyslexia. This special event will be hosted by Senator David Norris, and two of Ireland’s leading authors Joseph O’Connor and David McWilliams will read from and discuss their work.

This special event will be held on Thursday October 21st in the Wood Quay Venue, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 (from 7.00pm-9.00pm).

Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity to meet leading Irish authors, hear them read from and discuss their work, perhaps even get a favourite book signed by the author. All funds raised will be used to provide specialist tuition to children and adults with dyslexia from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.

Tickets for this event are just €15 per person. Tickets are available from the Dyslexia Association of Ireland. Tel. 01 6790276 or email info@dyslexia.ie.

According to Jo Gannon DAI’s National President “unaddressed dyslexia can have huge lifelong consequences. The Dyslexia Association is committed to improving awareness of dyslexia and also to support people with dyslexia to achieve their potential. The Novel Idea … Authors Read for Dyslexia event will enable people to pass on and share the joy of reading”. Author and human rights campaigner Don Mullan wrote that “discovering that I am dyslexic … set me on a road to new and unimagined adventures”.
