Authors Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen, who struck a chord with their series Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling, will team up with novelist and blogger Bethany Rutter for an event titled “True to Your Heart” at 5pm on Saturday April 9. for the Cúirt Literature Festival 2022.
Cúirt will run from Monday April 4 to Sunday April 10, with its usual literary mix, including stories, poetry, ideas and discussions.
While full festival details won’t be revealed until early next year, “True to Your Heart” is an early announcement and tickets for the reading are on sale now.
In Aisling in the City, Breen and McLysaght’s latest book, a surprise job offer brings the heroine to New York City, where she gets a taste of the Big Apple lifestyle. As she enters a new phase, the authors explore how Aisling’s American Dream compares to the sense of community and belonging she feels at Ballygobard.
London-based journalist and podcaster Bethany Rutter has achieved huge success for her novels YA, Melt My Heart and No Big Deal. Now she has turned to adult fiction, with her debut book, Welcome to your Life, to be published by Harper Collins early next year.
Her 29-year-old heroine, Serena Mills, has a job and a house, and she is soon to marry the man she’s been dating for a decade. In short, she is a woman who has everything she wants, at least that’s what she is told. But, in the first pages of the novel, Serena throws everything away. She realizes that she has just settled for the convenience and begins to search to find out what she really wants and who she really wants.
Tickets are now on sale for what Cúirt’s artistic director, Sasha du Buyl, called a “big-hearted, life-enhancing event” on April 9.
Sasha explains that Cúirt will be leading a “sliding scale” pilot project regarding ticket prices next year.
