Lunchtime Reading at the Irish Writers Centre

On Saturday 31st August at 1pm, there are some debut novelists reading at the Irish Writers Centre.
It's free and everyone's welcome.
Join us at the Centre for another Lunchtime Reading. This afternoon we have two new new writers who's debut novels have both been met with a great deal of fanfare. Niamh and Janet secured book deals following the Centre's inaugural Novel Fair competition. Niamh's debut The Herbalist, published by Penguin Ireland, is a rich multi-layered story of life in 1930s Ireland told through the eyes of four women, each of whose lives is changed irrevocably by the herbalist. Janet's novel Cinnamon Toast and the End of the World, published by Hachette, is the story of a restless kid growing up in rural Nova Scotia in the late 1980s, whose world comes to an end when he discovers that he’s in love with his best friend Mark.

Both writers will read from their work and muse on the challenges facing new writers - in particular how one sets about promoting their own work.'
