Haunted Tales BOOKED OUT Amy Clarkin and Oein DeBhairduin in conversation with Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan
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.
This is an 18+ event.
