6.30pm–8.30pm | All welcome
All are welcome to the launch of Talkin’ Squirrel Blues by Pádraig Hanratty
Who speaks the most sense, a dead blues singer or a live squirrel? Moses McNamara isn’t sure. After his girlfriend suddenly leaves him and his marketing career spirals out of control, Moses must rebuild his shattered life. His companions in this quest include a trendy talkin’ squirrel, an elderly neighbour and a blues singer with six strings and a grudge. Can Moses find a new love to help him forget the girlfriend who walked away? Or will the past always rattle in his brain like a half-remembered song? Combining a dash of Flann O’Brien with a splash of Muddy Waters, Talkin’ Squirrel Blues is a hilarious surreal tale of anguished love, missed deadlines and clanging guitars.
There will be surprise guest speakers on the night.
