Join us for the 2023 Dublin Book Festival at The New Theatre with two fantastic events featuring some of Ireland’s top writers.
On November 9th at 5.45pm, we will host the Emerging Writers conversation.
Author Jan Carson will be in conversation with some of Ireland’s most exciting emerging authors. The Red Bird Sings (Virago) by Aoife Fitzpatrick is a searing feminist historical Gothic fiction that confronts urgent issues of the present day. Catfish Rolling (Head of Zeus) by Clara Kumagai is a story that blends magic-realism with Japanese myth and legend. Perpetual Comedown (New Island) by Declan Toohey is a contemporary yarn of academic intrigue and youthful irreverence, sexual fluidity and neurodiversity.

On November 9th at 7.10pm join us for a Haunted Tales conversation.
Join this evening event where authors discuss their spooky tales with writer and performer Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan. Amy Clarkin’s What Walks These Halls (The O’Brien Press) is a story of family, friendship and self-discovery centring around the haunted Hyacinth House. Oein DeBhairduin’s Twiggy Woman (Skein Press) is a chilling collection of ghost stories rooted in the oral tradition of the Irish Traveller community and folklore, re-envisioned and retold for modern times.
