Booker Prize Winner Paul Lynch to Attend Granard Booktown 2024

Join us this April 20th at 9pm as we welcome Paul Lynch, the winner of the 2023 Booker Prize for his novel "Prophet Song", for an in-depth conversation with festival patron and award-winning author Belinda Mckeon. This is an event not to be missed as we delve into the themes of political extremism and the plight of refugees explored in his inspiring work.

"Prophet Song" explores the rise of political extremism and the struggles of refugees. The novel's protagonist, Eilish Stack, tries to make sense of a nightmarish social collapse as secret police detain her union leader husband. She is desperate to do whatever it takes to keep her family together.

Come and be inspired by Paul Lynch's journey and the themes explored in his remarkable work, and be a part of this unforgettable event.

Tickets go on sale from our website from February 12th at 10am. Tickets can be purchased here.
