Sunday 8th October 2017, 7pm at Central LibraryJoin us for an intimate conversation with one of Ireland’s best-loved writers, Roddy Doyle, discussing his books, his film adaptations, and his forthcoming novel, Smile. It tells the captivating story of Victor Forde, for whom a chance meeting in a pub conjures up long-buried childhood memories – and it’s a book about how we all struggle to accommodate our past selves. Roddy is the author of eleven novels for adults – including Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha (winner of the Booker Prize), The Barrytown Trilogy, and The Woman Who Walked into Doors, and eight books for children as well as many short stories, plays and screenplays. His book The Commitments was adapted into a hit film in 1991.
