Sally Rooney's NORMAL PEOPLE caught the imagination of readers and viewers with its evocative depiction of the student life at Trinity College, but beyond the cozy sitting rooms and student parties is a complex evolving city. DUBLIN VOICES highlights the diverse narratives that spring from the Irish capital. Our summer series features: Colum McCann, a Dubliner with a truly global outlook whose fierce new novel APIEROGON depicts love and loss in the Middle East; the US launch of LOVE, the latest acclaimed novel by Roddy Doyle, poet biographer of Dublin city & its suburbs; and the intensely personal, corporeal essays of Sinead Gleeson's CONSTELLATIONS which delve into what it is to be a modern Irish woman, reflecting Dublin not as a single city, but as multiple, sometimes conflicting communities. DUBLIN VOICES presents a case study of one of the world’s most celebrated literary centers: rooted in history and story, propelled into an inevitable modernity and now forced to confront the entangled realities of a post-pandemic urban space. 

Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.  

The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a copy of the book from our website, which you can reach from the green button in the event.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
