Sunday 4th June 2017
Presented by Dalkey Book Festival
The Dalkey Book Festival 2017 presents ‘An Evening with Bernie Sanders’. On his first ever visit to Ireland, the longest serving Independent in US congressional history will join David McWilliams in conversation on Sunday June 4 2017.
Hugely popular across broad swathes of the American electorate, many believe Bernie Sanders could have beaten Donald Trump easily with his coherent political alternative that galvanized millions of ordinary Americans. The fight is not over. Bernie will explain his alternative vision for America and the world, spelled out in his brilliant, best-selling book, Our Revolution.
Commenting on the announcement of the event festival director Sian Smyth said “ It is an extraordinary privilege for the Dalkey Book Festival to host Bernie Sanders, we are truly delighted to bring him to Ireland for the first time. He is an iconic political figure of our time, a stunning orator and with such turmoil in the US and globally we are very much looking forward to hearing his thoughts and insights”
