Mr B’s hosts: ‘Actress’ with Anne Enright
February 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm£6 – £7
The team of booksellers at mr B’s are incredibly excited to welcome legendary Irish author Anne Enright. Anne’s wonderful string of novels have explored the themes of love, family and religion in elegant, sparkling detail, from ‘The Green Road’ to ‘The Gathering’. This February, Anne joins us to discuss her powerful and deeply moving new novel ‘Actress’.
Nora is the daughter of the fictional Irish theatre star Katherine O’Dell. Piecing together the fragments and memories of a chaotic, bohemian life on the road, ‘Actress’ is a collage of Katherine’s life created by her daughter, which takes the reader from humble Dublin beginnings to the glamour of Broadway and back again. It’s an intense, disturbing portrait of fame, celebrity and the relationships between mothers and daughters.
Join us for what promises to be a fascinating chat with an author whose work always oozes warmth, intelligence and insight, and at one of our favourite Bath venues: Walcot House!
Doors open 6.30pm for 7pm start.
