Join us in Blanchardstown Library where Louise Nealon will discuss her novel Snowflake in conversation with writer Kerri Ní Dochartaigh. A story of a college student adjusting to her new life in Dublin, Snowflake explores life’s milestones, family, mental health and how we connect with others. There will be time for Q&A from the audience. Snowflake is available to borrow from Fingal Libraries.
