Dublin: One City, One Book is an award-winning Dublin City Council initiative, led by Dublin City Libraries and Dublin UNESCO City of Literature, which encourages everyone to read a book connected with the capital city during the month of April every year.

This year’s Dublin One City One Book Selection is Tatty by Christine Dwyer Hickey. First published by New Island Books in 2004, the book focuses on Tatty’s childhood in a Dublin family struggling with a growing dependency on alcohol– as Christine Dwyer Hickey calls it, the “disease nobody dares mention.” Through the lens of a growing, unfiltered child, Tatty tells the story of her family as she becomes more and more aware of where her family differs from others.
