Book Event: Thomas Morris – Open Up

12 September 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for an evening with Thomas Morris to celebrate his new collection of short stories, Open Up, in conversation with Michael Magee.

About Open Up:

The new collection from a literary star – five achingly tender, innovative and dazzling stories of (dis)connection. From a child attending his first football match, buoyed by secret magic, and a wincingly humane portrait of adolescence, to the perplexity of grief and loss through the eyes of a seahorse, Thomas Morris seeks to find grace, hope and benevolence in the churning tumult of self-discovery.

Philosophically acute. Wincingly humane. Strikingly original. This outstanding suite of stories is bursting with a bracing emotional depth. Open Up cracks the heart as it expands the short story form.
