Catherine Ryan Howard, Mike McCormack, Emilie Pine, moderated by Rosemary Graham

Three celebrated Irish writers join the Festival this year. Mike McCormack has won wide acclaim for his moving and innovative third novel, “Solar Bones,” which Booklist called “a work of bold risks and luminous creativity.” Catherine Ryan Howard burst onto the Irish literary scene with her propulsive thriller “Distress Signals” and has quickly gained an international reputation for her “slick and stylish” and “psychologically acute” writing. The Irish Times proclaimed Emilie Pine’s searching “Notes to Self” “the kind of book you want to give to everyone,” though Anne Enright cautioned against reading it in public because “it will make you cry.”
