It was the biggest  turnout that we have ever had for any Culture Night event thus far – so huge in fact that we simply could not fit everyone inside the premises and a crowd amassed outside! Our highlight of the evening was the launch Donal’s new book All We Shall Know. Lilliput’s proprietor, Antony Farrell, gave a warm speech to introduce Donal before the author said a few words and then delivered a sublime reading from the book alongside the…

Here at Lilliput, we were very saddened to hear of the passing of our author, the wonderfully gifted Joseph Hone. Joseph was a gentleman and one of the finest authors that we have ever published.   Born in 1937, Joseph was educated at Kilkenny College, Sandford Park and later St. Columba’s College. Joseph went on to live a rich and varied life, starting out as a teacher then finding his way into film. He later produced plays and musicals for the Theatre Royal in Stratford, east London while he also had involvement in theatre here in Ireland with Envoy Productions. The next phase of his career saw him become a successful novelist, broadcaster, travel writer…

Anyone who tends to throw their eye over our Lilliput Twitter account will have noticed that, of late, many of our tweets have been related to the visual arts; be it tweets about the artist and sculptor Carol Rama at IMMA or the photographer William Eggleston at the National Portrait Gallery in London or David Hockney at the MAC in Belfast. At Lilliput our interest spans the whole of the Arts. Though Lilliput is synonymous with literature we also have a really wonderful collection of modern art books and photography books, books on architecture and books on graphic art. Our favourites include a gorgeous limited edition book by Barry Cooke and the wonderful books by…
