Description

Die Irische Botschaft lädt zu einer Vorlesung und Diskussion auf Englisch mit folgenden Schriftstellerinnen ein:

Louise O' Neill grew up in Clonakilty, a small town in West Cork, Ireland. Her first novel, ONLY EVER YOURS, was released in 2014. Only Ever Yours went on to win the Sunday Independent Newcomer of the Year at the 2014 Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards; the Children's Books Ireland Eilís Dillon Award for a First Children's Book; and The Bookseller's inaugural YA Book Prize 2015. Louise's second novel, ASKING FOR IT, was published in September 2015 to widespread critical acclaim. She went on to win the Specsaver's Senior Children's Book of the Year at the 2015 Irish Book Awards, the Literature Prize at Irish Tatler's Women of the Year Awards, and the American Library Association's Michael L. Printz award. Asking For It was voted Book of the Year at the Irish Books Awards 2015 and spent 52 weeks in the Irish top 10 bestseller list. The New York Times called it "riveting and essential" and The Guardian named O' Neill "the best YA fiction writer alive today." Both novels have been optioned for screen.
O' Neill's first novel for adults, ALMOST LOVE, was published in March 2018. THE SURFACE BREAKS, her feminist re-imagining of The Little Mermaid, followed in May 2018 and was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards and the National Book Awards in the UK.

Sara Baume's debut novel, Spill Simmer Falter Wither, was longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and has been widely translated. She received a literary fellowship from the Lannan Foundation in New Mexico in 2015, and her second novel, A Line Made by Walking, was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize in 2017. She lives in West Cork where she works as a visual artist as well as a writer.

Audrey Magee's first novel, The Undertaking, was short-listed for several prizes, including the Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange Prize) as well as France's Festival du Premier Roman. The Undertaking has been translated into several languages and is being adapted for film. Audrey lives in Wicklow and is working on her second novel.
