THE AWARD winning writer, Donal Ryan, will give a reading in Gorey Library tonight (Tuesday), at 7.30 p.m.
Tipperary born Donal Ryan's first novel, 'The Spinning Heart', won both Newcomer of the Year and the overall Book of the Year at the Bord Gais Irish Book Awards 2012.
This book has been lauded by critics ever since its release. Jennifer Johnston said it is 'most beautifully written and plotted,' and Declan Hughes crime writer said 'sometimes people say, having praised a debut novel, that they look forward to what the writer does next, as if there is always room for improvement. Given a novel as brilliantly realised as The Spinning Heart, I see no reason to look anywhere but the present. For Donal Ryan, the future is now.'
Admission is free, but booking is advised, and some spaces are still available. Contact Gorey Library at 053 9421481 or see the Gorey Library page on Facebook. All are welcome.
