Mayo County Library and Erris Book Club are delighted to invite you to an evening with Author Kate Kerrigan at Áras Inis Gluaire, Belmullet.

Kate Kerrigan is an author living and working in Ireland. Her novels include Recipes for a Perfect Marriage, shortlisted for Romantic Novel of the Year in 2008 and translated into 20 languages, The Miracle of Grace, adapted as a film script with funding from the Irish Film Board and Ellis Island, the first of a trilogy selected as a TV Book Club Summer Read in Britain and launched by Harper Collins in the U.S. in 2011. Its sequel City of Hope was an instant bestseller and is due for publication in America by Harper Collins in 2013 with the final part of the Ellie Hogan trilogy, Land of Dreams also due out in Spring 2013.

Kate began her career as an editor and journalist, editing many of Britain’s most successful young women’s magazines before returning to her native Ireland in the 1990’s to edit Irish Tatler. She writes a weekly column in the Irish Mail about her life in Killala, County Mayo – and contributes a bi-weekly opinion editorial to the Irish Mail on Sunday.

Several of Kate’s books are under negotiation with film production companies and she is currently writing her sixth novel – a moving love story set in her native Ireland called Two Islands.
