The historic Irish town of Kells will play host to some of the world’s finest writers this coming weekend during the Hay Festival Kells.
The line-up of fiction writers includes Hanif Kureishi (My Beautiful Laundrette, The Buddha of Suburbia, Love and Hate), Patrick McCabe (The Butcher Boy), Kevin Barry (Beatlebone), Lisa McInerney (The Glorious Heresies), Jax Miller (Freedom’s Child), Liz Nugent (Unravelling Oliver), Oona Frawley (Flight), Mike McCormack (Solar Bones), and Vanessa Ronan (The Last Days of Summer).
There will also be a range of non-fiction authors, including Myles Dungan (How the Irish Won the West), Hilary Fannin (Hopscotch), and Patrick Deeley (The Hurley-Maker’s Son), as well as a series of talks on the graphic novel and game design.
I will be blogging the Festival as a guest of the Kells Experience, and I will be interviewing several of the writers.
Posts will appear here and at 2paragraphs.com over the weekend.
Tickets for the Festival can be booked here.
