Historical fiction has stormed the bookshelves in recent years and is as popular in the Irish language as in English. Join us for a lively panel, chaired by Cathal Póirtéir, that will discuss everything from the Battle of Fontenoy to historically inspired detective novels. Panelists include: Liam Mac Cóil, recently shortlisted for the Arts Council’s Irish Fiction Laureate and author of Fontenoy; Darach Ó Scolaí, author of An Cléireach which won Gradam Uí Shúilleabháin Book of the Year Award in 2008; and Seán Ó Dúrois (Rí na gCearrbhach and Crann Smola).
Presented in association with the Irish Writers Centre and IMRAM.
