An evening with best-selling author Cecelia Ahern

October 14 @ 20:00 22:00

As part of the 2024 Farsley Literature Festival we are delighted to announce, an evening at the Old Woollen with multi-million bestseller and contemporary fiction powerhouse, Cecelia Ahern. Cecelia constantly defies expectations. Ever evolving, she is most recently known for her provocative, mind-bending collection Roar, adapted for TV by Nicole Kidman.

Cecilia will be taking about her latest gripping novel ‘Into the Storm‘ which is about motherhood, escaping the past, and what really happened on one wild, stormy night.

Surviving the storm is only the beginning… It is a wild night in the middle of December, and GP Enya is crouched over a teenage boy, performing CPR in the freezing rain. She found him on a mountain road near Dublin, the victim of a hit-and-run.
The boy survives, but Enya goes to pieces. She leaves her husband, her son, and everything she knows to start a new life in remote rural Ireland.
But even in the quiet of Abbeydooley, beneath the boughs of an ancient tree, Enya is still haunted by that night in the rain. Can the stories of strangers and a land steeped in legend lay the ghosts of her past to rest? Or will the storm she’s outrunning finally catch up with her?

This event is part of the 2024 Farsley Literature Festival
