An unmissable event with two consummate masters of storytelling – and big fans of each other’s work!

With New York Times best-sellers, short stories, a children’s book and a ground-breaking collection of essays behind her, Amy Bloom’s new novel White Houses charts the passionate hidden love affair between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and journalist Lorena Hickok.

Booker prize-winning Roddy Doyle has written eleven novels as well as plays, screenplays, and short stories. Smile, his powerful tale of a middle-aged Dubliner dealing with memories of childhood abuse, was chosen by Irish Times’ Ticket readers as their favourite Irish fiction of 2017.
