Thirty of the best known Irish based authors have come together to contribute to a unique celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in collaboration with Amnesty International and the Irish Times.

Every Saturday, in the run up to International Human Rights Day on December 10, the Irish Times will carry an original work featuring one of the thirty articles of the Declaration and a writer's response to, or interpretation, of it.

The series was begun with an essay by Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney.
