Caitlin Moran to speak at Dublin Writers Festival

The acclaimed writer joins Dan Brown in the line up for the festival in May.

ACCLAIMED BRITISH WRITER Caitlin Moran is to speak at the Dublin Writers Festival in May.

The columnist for the Times and author of How To Be a Woman will give a talk at the National Concert Hall as part of the festival.

Moran published her first book at the age of 15 and became a full-time writer at 16 when she began writing for Melody Maker magazine, before moving to the Guardian and the Observer and then the Times.

Her 2011 book relating experiences from her own life mixed with her approach to feminism became a smash hit, and was credited with being part of a new wave of feminist writing which revived the movement for a new generation.

Moran appeared on The Late Late Show last September to promote the release of Moranthology, a collection of her columns from the Times.

Tickets for the audience with Moran cost €20.

Dan Brown, the author of The Da Vinci code which has sold more than 80 million copies worldwide, is also speaking at the Dublin Writers Festival.
