This is the first in a series of live recordings, made on location in an attic somewhere in Dublin.

We were joined in the attic by the wonderful Lia Mills, author of Fallen, this year’s Dublin: One City One Book selection.

We talked about the inspiration for Fallen, the commemoration of 1916, the importance of the role women played during the period and this year’s inaugural Two Cities One Book festival, which twins book clubs in Dublin and Belfast.

Featuring Lia Mills

Presented by Nessa O’Mahony

    Such an enjoyable piece, which covered in depth the time period so well. It’s fascinating that it’s taken so long for Irish writers to reclaim this period. Lia does a great job of explaining her writing fascination with the period & Nessa asks just the right questions! Hugely enjoyed it & can’t wait to read the book! Best of luck going forward with these. And did I say that it was beautifully filmed? This will become a rich repository for the future, if this one’s anything to go by. Thank you!

    I was excited about this and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Lia is such a knowledgeable and interesting woman and one of Ireland’s best writers.
    Congratulations to Nessa and Peter on the first of The Attic Sessions. A wonderful initiative. Here’s to many more.
