Canada launch of The Years That Followed
International bestselling Irish author, Catherine Dunne, launches onto the Canadian scene with her latest novel The Years That Followed.
On Tuesday, 25 October 2016, Catherine will meet readers at Ravine Vineyard, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and will present her latest work.
The Years That Followed is already captivating readers’ imagination and earning marked acclaim in Italy and Ireland, while translation rights have also been acquired for Polish and Greek language editions.
The Years That Followed is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom early in 2017.
Catherine’s novels have been shortlisted for many prizes. In 2013, she was honoured to receive the Giovanni Boccaccio International Prize for Fiction. This award coincided with the 700th anniversary of the birth of Italy’s famed poet, writer, and Renaissance humanist, Giovanni Boccaccio. The novel that won this prestigious award was entitled, The Things We Know Now. It was also shortlisted for the Novel of the Year at the Irish Book Awards in 2013.
Recently, Catherine was longlisted for the inaugural Laureate for Irish Fiction.
She has also published one work of non-fiction: a social history of Irish immigrants in London, called An Unconsidered People.
Following these launches, Catherine is scheduled to be a guest of honour at Italy’s International Pisa Book Festival in November 2016.
The Canadian launch of The Years That Followed on October 25, 2016, will be a meet-the-author evening in the beautiful surroundings of Ravine Vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
