The National Library of Ireland, in conjunction with Random House Children's Books, the Scottish Book Trust, and Children's Books Ireland is pleased to host a unique event with highly acclaimed teen fiction authors Kate Thompson and Keith Gray on Monday 30 June from 7pm - 8.30pm. Kate and Keith will participate in a lively debate about writing for a teenage audience, chaired by Robert Dunbar, broadcaster and Irish Times reviewer.
Kate Thompson is a multiple-award winning author of such books as The New Policeman and The Last of the High Kings. Her latest book, Creature of the Night, out in June 2008, is highly anticipated. It is a gritty, hard-hitting tale of disaffected youth, with Kate’s trademark twist of the supernatural. Keith Gray is the virtual writer in residence at Scottish Book Trust. He is the author of such acclaimed books such as Warehouse, Malarkey, and The Fearful. His new novel is the eagerly awaited Ostrich Boys.
Places are free but strictly limited and priority will be given to younger readers. To reserve a seat, please contact Children's Books Ireland at 01-8727475 or at firstname.lastname@example.org (Donogh)
