Irish Crime Fiction: A Festival

Friday 22 November and Saturday 23 November
Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin and Glucksman Ireland House, New York University are holding a festival devoted to Irish crime fiction, featuring more than a dozen of the most exciting Irish and Irish-American crime novelists. This will be a memorable weekend, devoted to a key genre of contemporary Irish writing, so please make plans to join us.

We’re particularly pleased to announce that our weekend will conclude with a major event: for the Irish launch of his newest novel, The Gods of Guilt (Orion Books, November 2013), Michael Connelly will be interviewed by John Connolly. After the interview, and questions from the audience, Michael will be signing books, which will be for sale on the evening.

Books by all of the authors will be available for purchase at the festival throughout the weekend.

Tickets for ‘An Evening with Michael Connelly’ are €6 (inc. fees), and tickets for Friday evening and Saturday daytime events are free. Tickets for all events at the festival are available HERE http://www.eventbrite.com/org/4699962037
