Man Booker Prize winner Anne Enright is to hold a talk followed by a Q&A session at Stirling University on December 4.
Enright will attend the literary event at 7pm at Logie Lecture Theatre where she will talk about her award-winning book The Gathering. The Gathering is a domestic fiction novel which won the Man Booker Prize in 2007.
At this event Enright will read extracts from her book before taking part in a question and answering session. During the event copies of her book will be on sale and afterwards there will be a signing opportunity.
This event is part of the Booker Prize Foundation Universities Initiative which hopes to encourage younger people to start reading contemporary fiction. It will be funded by both the initiative and the university of Stirling.
Each year, one attendee student will receive a free copy of The Gathering.
