Caitlin Moran is coming to Dublin as part of the International Literature Festival.

The special off-the-page event, with Moran in conversation with Roisin Ingle, will take place at the National Concert Hall on September 7.

Moran will be in town to talk life, writing, and her most recent novel How To Be Famous, the follow-up to the excellent How To Be A Girl.  She is also the author of 2011's How To Be A Woman.

She began writing when she was 13 and became the Observer's Young Reporter of the year at just 15.  Se has won many British Press awards including Columnist, Interviewer and Critic of the Year.

How To Be A Woman was published in 25 countries, became a New York Times bestseller, and won the British Book Awards Book of the Year.  Moranthology and How To Build A Girl, meanwhile, were both Sunday Times bestsellers.

How To Be Famous was published in June and follows the trials and tribulations of Johanna Morrigan, who is now 19, and who now has a monthly column with The Face.  She's also embroiled in an ill-fated affair with comedian Jerry Sharp while fantasizing about her unrequited love, musician and addict John Kite.
