Sit in on this informative chat and come away with a fuller understanding and appreciation for the craft of short story writing. Author and playwright Christine Dwyer Hickey introduces her eighth and latest novel The Lives of Women (Atlantic Books), an uncompromising portrayal of the suburbs and the cruelties brought about by the demands of respectability. Well-versed in the art of short story writing, Martin Malone’s newest collection of tales in This Cruel Station (Doire Press) explore what it is like to be Irish — and new Irish — in today’s society. Sean O’Reilly is the author of multiple books including the new collection Levitation (The Stinging Fly Press), an anthology of ten short stories. This engaging talk will be guided by Paula Shields, a top arts journalist and researcher for RTÉ.
