Edmund De Waal – Dublin

Edmund de Waal wrote the surprise hit ‘The Hare with Amber Eyes’ last year, and it is still in the top ten non fiction books in England. It tells the tale of his family’s collection of Netsuke – wood and ivory carvings of animals, plants and people. The story starts in 1870, in Paris, and tells the tale of how the collection survived the wars and ended up in his posession. It’s a fascinating read for those you haven’t encountered the book already.

Edmund will be giving a public interview in City Hall, Dublin on Wednesday (June 8th) at 6.30. It will take the form of a reading with a public interview by Eileen Battersby and question and answers session. It is part of the celebrations for the Year of Craft 2011 (who knew?). Tickets are ten euro and are available here.
