Award-winning writer Emilie Pine tackles the human heart and its myriad complexities in her debut novel, Ruth & Pen. Join us for a very special event with Emilie in conversation with journalist and author, Patrick Freyne.
Emilie Pine is no stranger to creative intimacy. Her personal Notes to Self – voted Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards – was actually a literary call to generations of Irish women to step into conversations about grief, bodily autonomy, and identity. Now, with her first foray into fiction, she presents her readers with a day in the life of Ruth and Pen, two women struggling to survive in a world that seems to demand their surrender. During a single day in Dublin in 2019, Ruth and Pen will witness the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Emilie is a Professor of Modern Drama at University College Dublin.
