Peadar O’Guilin – The Call

The Call paperbackCalling all YA fiction fans! Come and meet Peadar O’Guilin as he stops off at Booka to talk about his dark and dazzling novel, The Call, inspired by the beautiful north west of Ireland where he grew up.

The Call is shortlisted for the YA Book Prize 2017.

‘Your people drove them out of their homes. Thousands of years later they turn up again – and they’re gonna wipe you out.’


On her birthday, Nessa finds out the terrible truth about her home in Ireland – the truth that will change her future forever.


That she and her friends must train for the most dangerous three minutes of their lives:



That any day now, without warning, they will each wake in a terrifying land, alone and hunted, with a one in ten chance of returning alive.

And it is Nessa, more than anyone, who is going to need every ounce of the guts, wit, and sheer spirit she was born with, if she – and the nation – are to survive.

Peadar is powerful and original new voice in fiction. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet him.

Date: Tuesday 30th May – 4.30pm

Venue: Booka
