Off The Page: Kazuo Ishiguro in conversation

Friday, 12 Mar
€8 - €25

We are thrilled to welcome Kazuo Ishiguro for this very special event to mark the publication of Klara and the Sun, his first novel since receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Klara and the Sun tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watching the humans in the store where she’s based and those on the street outside. Remaining hopeful a customer will one day choose her, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans. 

Ishiguro’s work, which includes the Booker-winning The Remains of the Day and the dystopian novel Never Let Me Go, has been translated into over fifty languages. Klara and the Sun highlights his uncanny ability to speak to the here and now, from an imaginative perspective that is all his own. Join us to hear this exceptional writer in conversation with Sinéad Gleeson, author of Constellations, and to put your questions to him during the event.

Presented by International Literature Festival Dublin in association with Faber and Faber and Eason as retail partner.

PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are priced at €25* which includes a ticket to the event and a signed hardback copy of Klara and the Sun.  If you wish to only buy a ticket for €8, please input the coupon code KLARA before purchasing your ticket.
