Ever wondered how to write the perfect thriller? Or perhaps you're a culture vulture who knows a lot about books? If so, The Big Book Club Show is for you!
In the first part of the show, Irish Times Digital Editor Hugh Linehan talks to acclaimed thriller writers Liz Nugent (Unravelling Oliver) and Sinéad Crowley (Can Anybody Help Me?), asking how they went about creating characters who do terrible things.
In part two, The Big Book Club Quiz offers you a chance to test your literary knowledge against a team of experts captained by Hugh Linehan, and a crack book club squad captained by comedian and writer Colm O’Regan. Hosted with irrepressible cheek by Stephen Faloon, manager of the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, who likes to award bonus points for clever answers and whisk them away for mistakes, The Big Book Club Show is a fast, fun and competitive night. You might even win a prize!
FoxPop Productions presents the Big Book Club Show. Clare Fox of FoxPop has created The Big Book Club Show which launches at this years festival. You can meet their favourite writers, test your literary knowledge and perhaps even learn something.
