We are delighted to welcome to Dún Laoghaire award-winning columnist and bestselling author of How to Be a Woman and How to Build a Girl, Caitlin Moran, who will be discussing her recent bestselling collection, Moranifesto with Declan Hughes.

When Caitlin sat down to choose her favourite pieces for the new book she realised that they all seemed to join up. Turns out, it's the same old problems and the same old ass-hats. Then she thought of the word ‘Moranifesto’, and she knew what she had to do... This is Caitlin's engaging and amusing rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing unique to this book, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler.

And whilst never afraid to address the big issues of the day – such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats – Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her ‘Moranifesto’ for making the world a better place. The polite revolution starts here! Caitlin was actually christened 'Catherine' but saw 'Caitlin' in a Jilly Cooper novel when she was 13 and thought it looked exciting. Caitlin lives on Twitter with her husband and two children.

Declan Hughes is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter.
