This event has reached its capacity. To join the waitlist, please email [email protected].

With Colm Tóibín’s new collection of essays, A Guest at the Feast, he brings the reader along on spellbinding adventures from his life, so it’s only fitting that a celebration of the book takes place on a more intimate scale. For those familiar with how Tóibín speaks about his fiction, you already know that his way of storytelling feels more suited to cocktail conversation, and we’re throwing a special salon in our elegant Members Lounge to give the audience an opportunity to engage with the much-loved award-winning author about his love of literature and writing.

Space for this event will be limited and includes a copy of A Guest at the Feast with a glass of wine or a non-alcoholic beverage.
