A Night in With Ian Rankin and Marian Keyes

Wed 23 Sep 2020

You can still book online here (and up to 48 hours after the livestream)

One of the most anticipated books of the year, A Song For The Dark Times is the latest instalment in Ian Rankin’s legendary John Rebus detective series. Now, the master storyteller is live in conversation with one of the best and most successful living novelists, Marian Keyes, to celebrate the publication of his new novel.

Both worldwide bestsellers, and with nearly 50 books published between them, Ian and Marian will explore the art of writing brilliant fiction with their familiar good-humour and insight. They’ll consider what makes a really good story, and how they have been finding the inspiration to write through a global pandemic; although Ian’s latest novel has no connection to Coronavirus, the Brecht-inspired title reflects ‘a fairly dark period in history’. Don’t miss this unique event, pairing two of our greatest living authors.
