The Art of the Short Story

With Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Nuala O’Connor and William Wall

In Conversation with Paula Shields

Friday 16 November, 1pm - 2pm.

Dublin Book Festival in association with the National Library of Ireland

Join us for a conversation on the art of short fiction from three masters of the form. Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, author of six short story collections, has broken new ground this year with the publication of her memoir, Twelve Thousand Days (Blackstaff Press). Nuala O’Connor’s new novel, Becoming Belle (Hachette Ireland), tells the true story of an unstoppable woman’s rise to fame in Victorian London. Her fifth short story collection, Joyride to Jupiter (New Island), was published last year. William Wall’s latest short story collection, The Islands (University of Pittsburgh Press), and his new novel, Grace’s Day (Head of Zeus and New Island), hone in from different angles on the same tragedy. This talk will be guided by top arts journalist and RTÉ researcher Paula Shields.
