Christine Dwyer Hickey in Conversation with Niall MacMonagle with Musical Interludes
A Dublin One City One Book and Dublin Book Festival Online Event
Join us for a special online event with Christine Dwyer Hickey, author of this year’s Dublin One City One Book choice Tatty on Thursday 24th September at 7pm. Christine will be in conversation with literary critic Niall MacMonagle in the beautiful setting of Kevin Street Library, Dublin. She will discuss Tatty, her varied writing career, and in particular how music influences her writing.
Musical interludes will be contributed by pianist Leonora Carney and trumpeter Colm Byrne at the Hugh Lane Gallery and piper Donnacha Dwyer.
Tatty was originally published in 2004 and earlier this year a special Dublin One City One Book edition, with a new introduction by Dermot Bolger, was published by New Island Books. Christine recently won the 2020 Dalkey Literary Award and the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction for her most recent novel The Narrow Land.
Please note that you will need to register in advance to watch the event.
