For this year’s festival, we’re delighted to join forces with the awesome Siobhan Kane and her Young Hearts Run Free mischief-makers in The Library.
We have two great writers for you to meet
Karl Whitney is the author of two fascinating books. 2014’s Hidden Cities; Adventures and Explorations in Dublin was an acclaimed travelogue which looked at the capital city in the aftermath of the economic crash. This year’s Hit Factories: A Journey Through the Industrial Cities of British Pop is a musical and social history of modern Britain.
Ian Maleney is the author of Minor Monuments, a debut collection of beautifully haunting essays on memory, belonging and the meaning of home. Ian has also worked as a freelance arts journalist and web developer.
