  • Aurore Basson
  • 30 January, 2020

As part of the Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture programme, join our 2019 Irish laureate Jan Carson on a discussion of her winning novel 'The Fire Starters' for the Wild Atlantic Women weekend marking Internation Women's Day 2020. 

Wowing critics with its magic realist take on modern-day Belfast, the book has been hailed as ‘gripping, affecting and surprising’ (Lisa McInerney), ‘the best book I’ve read all year’ (JosephO’Connor), ‘spectacular’ (Donal Ryan) and ‘exhilarating’ (Roddy Doyle).

This event is made possible through the support of the EUPL and Doubleday Ireland.
