Pulitzer Prize winner Maureen Dowd in conversation with Fintan O'Toole

Probably the best–known newspaper columnist in the US, Maureen Dowd’s weekly column is read by millions every week.

She has brought us into her world of informed opinion on all the big issues and personalities of the day, since 1995 when she began writing op–ed pieces in the New York Times. She is a two–time Pulitzer Prize winner, the recipient of an honourary doctorate from NUI Galway, and a person of proud west of Ireland heritage.

She will be in conversation with Fintan O’Toole, whose latest book, We Don’t Know Ourselves, has received rave reviews in the US and the UK.
