Kit De Waal: My Name is Leon Film Screening
Date/Time: Friday 3 February 2023 19:00-21:00
Session No: 117
We are delighted to screen the acclaimed film adaptation of Kit de Waal’s My Name is Leon, which won the Irish Novel of the Year Award in 2017 and was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel and Desmond Elliot Prize.
Leon, a mixed-race boy, and Jake, his white baby brother, are separated after their mother has a breakdown. Leon is determined to find him, and gets unexpected support along the way.
This screening of My Name is Leon will be followed by an in-conversation talk with author Kit de Waal, chaired by William Mullally.
