Garbhan Downey Event

The comic novelist Garbhan Downey is the guest author at Lisburn City Library’s Big Big Reading Group on Thursday 5 November. He will be reading from and discussing his new novel War of the Blue Roses, a political satire in which a gardening competition in a little Irish country village ends up throwing three governments into turmoil when it sparks an international race to grow the world’s first blue rose. Bugging, burglary, sabotage, murder and sexual deceit are all part of the mix in this romp through the undergrowth of local politics. The Big Big Reading Group meets at 8pm. All are welcome. Admission is free but booking is essential. Ring Lisburn City Library to reserve your place(s) 9266 9350.

(Hmmm, I should be able to make this after the Lock-Keepers event... gb)

Have just finished the draft of a new novel, So Long and Slan: Letters of an American Envoy - a romp about a special consul sent to Derry to stop all the gravy going to Belfast - which I might read a bit from. Up Derry, and all that.

Garbhan - That's brilliant! I've just booked my spot.

Who's with me?
