Emilie Pine, author of Notes to Self (Winner of the An Post Irish Book of the Year 2018) and Jan Carsen, author of The Fire Starters (Winner of the EU Prize for Literature Ireland 2019) and guests will sit down to have a conversation about trauma and the contemporary reworking of myth for modern Irish audiences.
