Amy Bloom and Roddy Doyle in conversation is an unmissable event for book lovers. Hear first-hand why these two masterful authors are huge fans of each other’s work.

New York Times best-selling author Amy Bloom will discuss her dynamic catalogue of writing that includes essay and short story writing, children’s literature, as well as her new novel, White Houses. White Houses tells the passionate but hidden love story between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and journalist Lorena Hickok.

Booker prize-winner Roddy Doyle also has a diverse body of work ranging from playwriting, to screenwriting, as well as novels and short stories. His most recent award-winning novel, Smile, is a powerful tale centred on a middle-aged Dubliner.

Discover the similarities between Bloom’s and Doyle’s approach to writing at this talk as part of the 2018 International Literature Festival Dublin.
