Spend an evening with international bestseller and literary superstar Marian Keyes, to celebrate the paperback publication of her runaway success, Grown Ups. Live in conversation, Marian will be chatting about why writing contemporary issues into her work is so important, where she gets her inspiration from, and how she brings her trademark humour to her stories.

In her highly-acclaimed and much-loved fourteenth novel – Grown Ups – she turns her attention to the very issue of what it means to be a grown-up in the modern world and explores what happens when people just don’t behave like them.

Meet Jessie, Cara and Nell. Married to brothers Johnny, Ed and Liam Casey. Three very different women tied to three very different men. Every family occasion is a party – until the day the secrets spill out. Playtime is over. But where are the grown-ups?

Introducing a cast of pitch perfect characters and exploring themes such as blended families, intergenerational relationships, mid-life bulimia and the refugee crisis, Grown Ups is a novel essential for our times, and it is Marian Keyes at her best.

Don’t miss the chance to spend a thought-provoking and hilarious evening with one of our greatest living writers.

“Comic, convincing and true. Grown Ups has an almost Austenesque insight into character.

Keyes knows how to make serious issues relatable – and get a few grownup laughs, too” – Katy Guest, The Guardian

“It’s such a treat. I felt like I was reading the cleverest cream cake of words” – Caitlin Moran

“A novel that is warm and witty but never afraid to tackle the big stuff” – Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday

“Brava Marian Keyes!! Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely

absorbing” – Graham Norton

“Funny and moving, with an acute eye for family foibles” – Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus thrillers
