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.
The event will be chaired by journalist and broadcaster Edel Coffey.
