An Evening with Eimear McBride

The award-winning Irish author Eimear McBride visited Nottingham on Wed 1st Nov 2017, 7.00-8.30pm, at the newly-refurbished Beeston Library.

Eimear McBride’s debut novel, A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing, won the Bailey’s Prize for Women’s Fiction, the first Goldsmith’s Prize for experimental fiction, and the Irish Novel of the Year Award. Her new novel, The Lesser Bohemians, is set in 1990s London, and features a naive young Irish student who falls in love with an older actor.

Deirdre O’Byrne of Nottingham Irish Studies Group interviewed the author, who was very articulate and forthcoming on many aspects of her writing career, techniques and style. The room was packed, and the audience showed their appreciation by buying lots of books to be signed.

This event was co-hosted by Five Leaves Bookshop and Nottingham Irish Studies Group.
