The Book

They say boys don’t cry.  But Finn’s seen his Da do it when he thinks no one’s looking, so that’s not true.  And isn’t it okay to be sad when bad things happen?

They say boys don’t cry, but you might . . .

Praise for Fiona Scarlett

Fíona Scarlett rivals Roddy Doyle and Paul Howard in capturing Dublinese . . . That readers know a tragedy is coming makes this book all the more powerful.  Irish Examiner



About Our Virtual Lunches

At each lunch one compelling award-winning author talks about their book and inspirations, and then answers any questions from the Chair and guests.  Previous virtual lunches have featured the award-winning Sophie Hannah, the fantastically indomitable Ruby Wax, the wise and warm Fern Britton and the prolific best seller Louise Candlish.  We have welcomed guests from all over the UK as well as much further afield including Switzerland, Singapore and South Africa.

Both authors and guest have found our Virtual Lunch Hour platform (Crowdcast) so easy to use:  it allows for lots of chat, questions and social interaction making these virtual events incredibly sociable and interactive. Just click on the Book Now button, pay for your place and we will send you the link.

For those of you looking for corporate entertaining opportunities, why not book several places and then meet up on zoom or a similar platform to chat about the book afterwards.

The Virtual Gliterary Lunch Hour offers special sponsorship opportunities and tailored corporate packages which can be a great way of keeping your company profile high while meeting in person is more challenging. Contact us for more information.
