Dublin City Libraries Readers’ Day: Emerging Writers Panel

Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Elaine Feeney, Patrick Freyne and Alice Lyons In Conversation with Niall MacMonagle 

Join us for Dublin City Libraries Readers’ Day at Dublin Book Festival on Saturday 28th November at 2pm

Writer and critic Niall MacMonagle will host a panel discussion featuring some of Ireland’s most exciting debut writers. Doireann Ní Ghríofa is a bilingual writer whose hotly anticipated prose debut A Ghost in the Throat (Tramp Press) tells the stories of two writers living centuries apart. Elaine Feeney, a poet and teacher from Galway, joins us to discuss her first novel, As You Were (Harvill Secker), a story of sharing secrets across hospital beds. In his debut collection of essays, Ok, Let’s Do Your Stupid Idea (Penguin), Patrick Freyne showcases his sharp wit and beloved humour. Artist, poet, and film-maker, Alice Lyons, explores abandonment, grief, and hope in her debut novel Oona (Lilliput Press). Niall will be speaking to Doireann, Elaine, Patrick, and Alice on becoming writers, the fine line between art forms, and the art of the debut. Filmed in beautiful Kevin St Library in partnership with Dublin Book Festival.
