Join us for a celebration of the influence of writers upon each other across generations. In conversation with John Boyne, writers Claire Kilory and John Banville - a major literary influence of hers and of literature internationally - discuss the sources of creative inspiration. This event will explore the artistic and interdependent ecosystem that characterises creativity and the rich and various sources from which artists draw their inspiration. Standing on the Shoulders of Giants is essentially a celebration of the influence of writers upon each other across generations, as well as offering personal reflections on age and ageing. This event is organised with the support of the International Literature Festival Dublin.
