If you enjoy the newspaper classified ads, you’ll love this quirky event
Do you love a nose through the classifieds?
Author Brian O’Connell does too and this week he’ll be in town to host an intimate evening on that very theme as part of Irish Book Week.
Brian’s book The Personals reveals how classified ads are not just a few commercial lines of text in print or online – they can be a treasure trove of fascinating human stories; stories of love, loss, loneliness, redemption and hope.
“In an era of spin doctors and press releases, celebrities and social influencers, the classified ads can open a door into the lives of ordinary people with extraordinary stories.” says the event notice.
“What draws Brian to the classified ads are the intriguing human stories he finds there, the unexpected twists and turns, the personalities, the curious objects and the range of human experience waiting to be discovered.”
You can catch Brian in conversation at Waterstone’s Patrick Street on Halloween Night, October 31st from 7pm until 8pm.
