Daunt Books Festival 2020

Patrick Radden Keefe with Jonathan Shainin

A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland

Friday 20th March 2020
1:30pm – 2:30pm

Daunt Books Marylebone

Tickets £7.00
including a treat from La Fromagerie


One night in December 1972, Jean McConville, a mother of ten, was abducted from her home in Belfast and never seen alive again. Her disappearance would haunt her orphaned children, the perpetrators of the brutal crime and a whole society in Northern Ireland for decades.  Through this unsolved case, Patrick Radden Keefe tells the larger story of the Troubles and explores the extremes people will go to for an ideal and how societies mend – or not – after a long and bloody conflict.

Patrick’s superb book Say Nothing has garnered praise on both sides of the Atlantic, winning the Orwell Prize for Political Writing here and being named as one of The New York Times top ten books of 2019.

We welcome Jonathan Shainin, head of Opinion at the Guardian, to draw out the strands for us.
