Glorious Debuts with Lisa McInerney

I can’t wait to read with Lisa McInerney again at Kildare Readers Festival, Riverbank Arts Centre, October 14 at 8pm. We met last year at Cork World Book Festival and got on like a house on fire. She is so funny and an all-round lovely person.

We met again when Lisa read at a fundraiser I organised in Jan 2016 for KAVA Arts in Kinvara.

Since then Lisa has had enormous success winning the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Bailey’s Prize.

We love each other’s work and Lisa wrote an amazing essay on The Good Son for The Irish Times when it was the Book Club Choice for July this year. We’re also good buddies and the craic we have should lead to an excellent event at Kildare Readers Festival.

Hope to see some of you there.
