EBCF is delighted to welcome Chicago-based writer Rebecca Makkai to Ennis for this in-depth conversation with Belinda McKeon. In her extraordinary book, The Great Believers, Rebecca Makkai delivered an enthralling and emotionally riveting story about what it’s like to live during times of crisis. The Great Believers was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and received the ALA Carnegie Medal and the LA Times Book Prize. With her latest book, I Have Some Questions For You, she explores the problematic nature of truth seeking and the prevalence of podcasts as a form of media, in an engrossing suspense novel wrapped up in a coming of age story. Rebecca’s books fizz with piercing  wit and humour, great characterisation and complex plots. This will be a riveting conversation with Belinda McKeon, also an acclaimed novelist and non-fiction writer.
