Actor Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects, End of Days, In Treatment) will be joined by award-winning author Lily King (Writers & Lovers, Euphoria) to discuss the release of Byrne’s highly anticipated memoir, Walking with Ghosts. In it, Byrne provides a unique portrait of his Irish childhood and his remarkable journey from messenger boy and factory laborer to Hollywood and Broadway success. Weaving between recollections of an Irish upbringing and reflections on stardom, Byrne provides a funny and heartbreaking tale that pays homage to the people and environments that shaped his life and career.
