Red Line Book Fest, Oct 10, Dublin

Delighted to be reading alongside these great authors in one of my favourite cities. Here’s the blurb…

This Voice: Writing & The Working Class

A working class hero is something to be…Although working class characters are well represented in the Irish literary canon, more often than not, the writers behind the stories derive from more privileged backgrounds.Hosted by poet and writer Colm Keegan (Randomer), a panel of top authors explore the challenges faced by working class writers and the valuable perspectives they have to offer. Joining Keegan are Polari prize-winner Paul McVeigh (The Good Son), acclaimed author Frankie Gaffney (Dublin Seven) and bestselling writer June Caldwell (Room Little Darker).
