Eason at Dundrum Town Centre has launched The Artemis Project @ Eason which offers children and teens a creative environment where they can explore and interact with some of their favourite characters both old and new in a fun space while still learning through the enjoyment. The project is specifically designed to encourage children and young teens to read, discover and think!

Guests and their children enjoyed author readings by Derek Landy and Sarah Webb, delicious miniature canap├ęs for the kids, life size Horrid Henry and Maisy Mouse characters, as well as a caricature artist. Other well known Irish authors who enjoyed the evening were Laura Cassidy and Anna Carey, while Corina Grant and Emer O’Reilly-Hyland were also in attendance.
