In this special event, a major novelist celebrates and explores a key work by a favourite author.
Novelist and screenwriter Eoin McNamee (Resurrection Man, Blue Tango, Orchid Blue) revisits Don DeLillo’s ninth novel, Libra, a fictional account of a pivotal moment in US history. From Lee Harvey Oswald’s Bronx childhood to the actual trauma of Kennedy’s assassination, Libra remaps and re-imagines the events leading up to that fatal Dallas day in November, 1963.
Join Eoin McNamee for an intimate and in-depth discussion of the selected book, its wider themes and its influence on them as writer (and reader).*=
