About this event

Merdog Books is delighted to host the launch of Pauline Clooney’s debut novel, Charlotte & Arthur. To celebrate the launch the author will be in conversation with local writer and former Kildare Arts Officer, Mary Linehan. The song featured in the novel, ‘The Last Rose of Summer’, will be performed by the well-known singer, Dave Maguire, a Cork native, now living in Kildare and Dave will be accompanied on piano by the local and nationally renowned musician and composer, Kildare man, Owen C Lynch.

Described by Irish novelist Liz Nugent as a ‘A masterly work of skill and commitment...’, and by novelist and member of Aosdána, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne as ‘Imaginative and sensitive, this novel reveals the real Charlotte, as perhaps only a loving reader and a great storyteller can.’, the novel invites the reader into the heart and mind of the celebrated author, Charlotte Brontë, as she and her Irish husband, Arthur Bell Nicholls, honeymoon around post-famine Ireland.

Pauline Clooney an award-winning writer, originally from Laois, has been living and working in Kildare for over thirty years. A former teacher of English and History, she left that career in 2017 to concentrate on her writing. Pauline is the 2021 recipient of the Dennis O’ Driscoll Literary Bursary awarded by Kildare County Council. She is currently working on her next novel which focuses on the relationship between the poet, William Butler Yeats and his wife, George Hyde Lees.
