Seamus O'Mahony and Julia Samuel explore the last taboo in our society, death and how we grieve.
 
Julia Samuel, a grief psychotherapist, has spent twenty five years working with the bereaved. In her deeply affecting book Grief Works we hear stories from those who have experienced great love and great loss - and we learn how we can stop feeling awkward and uncertain about death.
The Way We Die Now is Seamus O’Mahony’s thoughtful, moving and unforgettable book on the western way of death. Dying has never been more public, with celebrities writing detailed memoirs of their illness, but in private we have done our best to banish all thought of dying and made a good death increasingly difficult to achieve. 
 
Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
11.30am - 12.30pm, £9. More info and booking here.

This event brings together a pair of fantastically impressive Irish debuts introduced by Peggy Hughes of Literary Dundee.

Honest, moving and human, Rory Gleeson’s Rockadoon Shore is a novel about friendship and youth, about missed opportunities and lost love, and about the realities of growing up and growing old in modern-day Ireland. Highly energetic and tensely humorous, it heralds a new and exciting voice in contemporary Irish fiction.

In EM Reapy’s Red Dirt, three young Irish migrants flee the collapse of their country's economy. In the heat and endless spaces of Australia they try to escape their past, but impulsive cruelty, shame and guilt drag them down, and it is easy to make terrible choices.

18.15-19.15, £6. More info and booking here.
