Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


Join one of the most successful Irish novelists of all time to celebrate the publication of her much anticipated new novel.

Marian Keyes has been writing international bestsellers about modern women in the modern world for over twenty years.

Her books deal with contemporary issues, including addiction, depression, domestic violence and the glass ceiling, but are always written with compassion, hope and her trademark Irish humour.

Her new book, Grown Ups, is about the Caseys: three brothers, their wives, ex-wives and young adult step-kids.

They’re a glamorous, attractive family who spend a lot of time together – birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weekends away. And they’re definitely a happy family. Under the surface, though, conditions are murkier.

While some people clash, other people like each other far too much...

When their happy families façade starts to unravel, every one of the adults finds themselves wondering if it's time – finally – to grow up?

Keyes in conversation is a delight, by turns thought-provoking and hilarious. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear her discuss her extraordinary new book in an interview by Alex Clark.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
