When was the last time you read something really, really good. Something that made you stay up late, despite your need for sleep? If you want to find another unputdownable book, you might be in need of a doctor!
The Book Doctor will help you find your perfect book, with a private session with a number of authors, such as John Banville, Dermot Bolger and Paul Howard.
Tickets are only a fiver, and it’s in aid of Alone, so you really have no excuse. Book now!
Sometimes you just don’t know what to read next. But don’t worry – the Book Doctors are here to help! Drop into our bookshop ‘clinics’ for a consultation with one of our highly trained book doctors, including Paul Howard, Ryan Tubridy, Sarah Bannan, Peter Sheridan, Selina Guinness, Gavin Corbett, Lisa McInerney, Henrietta McKervey, John Banville, David Shafer, Dermot Bolger, Susan Jane White, Eoin McNamee and Christine Dwyer Hickey. Once they’ve taken the pulse of your reading habits, they’ll prescribe a brand new book-from cookery to crime-that’s guaranteed to be just what you need.
Book clubs take note- you could use this as an outing and to shake up your future reading choices.
Be adventurous-some of our first time and emerging authors could be just the tonic you need.
Remember-once you’ve met your Book Doctor, you will come away with a signed ‘prescription’ for your reading health.
This is a charity event and all proceeds go to Alone.ie, the independent charity that works with older people in need.
