The acclaimed author of 'American Psycho' and 'Less Than Zero' is coming to Dublin for an exciting pre-festival event on April 25.
In its 21st year, International Literature Festival Dublin annually gathers many of the world's finest writers, hosting readings, discussions, debates, workshops, performances, screenings and more. Celebrating the talents of Irish and international writers alike, the festival invites a wide variety of new faces and household names working in fiction, non-fiction, playwriting and screenwriting. The festival takes place May 17-26, more information on the ILF Dublin website.
On April 25th, the ILF Dublin will be welcoming famed American author and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis for a pre-festival conversation, discussing his work and fielding questions from the audience. Bret Easton Ellis' work has been translated into 27 languages, ever since he was catapulted into fame with his 1985 novel Less Than Zero. Known for his searing satire, the character of Patrick Bateman captured the depravity of the 1980s in his novel American Psycho. Most recently, he published his first nonfiction work, a collection of essays and personal reflections entitled White, his first book in almost a decade.
Bret Easton Ellis in Conversation will take place Thursday, April 25th at the O’Reilly Theatre, Belvedere College. Tickets are available here.
