Savage Her Reply: A Book Club Celebration

28 November, 2020 , 11:30 am 12:30 pm GMT


With Deirdre Sullivan

Age 15+, event open for 5th class students

Dublin Book Festival is teaming up with one of Ireland’s most distinctive Young Adult voices, Deirdre Sullivan, to give book club participants the chance to ask this award-winning author their burning questions. Don’t miss your chance to explore Deirdre’s work with her, to inquire about her writing process, inspiration, and motivation, and to hear all about her latest release, the highly praised Savage Her Reply (Little Island), a haunting and lyrical retelling of the old Irish fairytale, The Children of Lir.
