BookBar Summer Series: Summer of Obsession with Megan Nolan

BookBar Summer Series: Summer of Obsession with Megan Nolan


Introducing BookBar's very first series of in-person events: the BookBar Summer Series.


Monday 26th July, 7pm

Summer of Obsession, with Megan Nolan author of Acts of Desperation

Join us for a conversation with Megan Nolan to discuss her debut novel Acts of Desperation. Bitingly honest and darkly funny Acts of Desperation is a stunning debut novel about a toxic relationship and secret female desire, from an emerging star of Irish literature. It's been selected as a Stylist Book of the Year, and is certainly one of BookBar's too.


Megan Nolan lives in London and was born in 1990 in Waterford, Ireland. Her essays, fiction and reviews have been published in The New York Times, The White Review, The Sunday Times, The Village Voice, The Guardian and in the literary anthology, Winter Papers. She writes a fortnightly column for the New Statesman. Acts of Desperation is her first novel.


Choose between an in person ticket without the book, an in person ticket includes a copy of the book (RRP: £14.99), a drink and a ticket to attend the event in person with Megan and the opportunity to get your book signed and dedicated by the author. Virtual tickets include a copy of the book and a ticket to watch a live stream of the event.
