Claire Keegan with Fintan O'Toole: Small Things Like These
Fri, Nov 3 from 2pm - 3pm
— SOLD OUT —
Irish writer, Claire Keegan, joins us to discuss her novel Small Things Like These, which won the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction and was shortlisted for both the Rathbones Folio Prize and the Booker Prize in 2022. An exploration of community, secrecy, and abuses of power, the book is currently being adapted into a film, produced by and starring Cillian Murphy. Brought up on a farm in Ireland, Keegan’s first volume of short stories, Antarctica, was published in 1999 and won the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature. Her story Foster won the Davy Byrnes Award and was chosen by The Times of London as one of the top 50 works of fiction to be published in the 21st century. Her new story collection So Late in the Day is published this November. She will be in conversation with Fintan O’Toole, visiting lecturer in Irish Letters at Princeton.
