Lisa McInerney, Sally Rooney & Joanna Walsh
Thursday 12th October, 7.30pm
Three exciting contemporary writers read and discuss their work. Lisa McInerney won the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction for her debut The Glorious Heresies. She will read and discuss her sequel, The Blood Miracles, a fierce and riotous story about youth, drugs and misguided ambitions. Sally Rooney’s work has been published in Granta, The White Review and Stinging Fly. Her debut novel, Conversations with Friends, is a brilliant, moving and incredibly funny look at relationships, identity, sex and youth. Joanna Walsh is the founder of @read_women and the author of Vertigo, Hotel, Grow a Pair and Fractals. She will read from her boldly experimental new collection of stories, Worlds From the Word’s End. The event will be hosted by Kaye Mitchell and is presented in partnership with the Centre for New Writing.
John Thaw Studio Theatre, Martin Harris Centre for Music & Drama
