Danny Ellis Reads & Signs his memoir @ Malaprop's Bookstore

8 Dec 2013

Sunday, December 8 at 3pm
Acclaimed singer/songwriter Danny Ellis (800 Voices) joins us for a reading from his powerful memoir, The Boy at the Gate. Danny grew up in Dublin slums the 1950s and endured the brutality of the Artane Industrial School. Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants) calls his memoir “a beautifully written, heartbreaking story of betrayal, abandonment, and the healing power of friendship and music.” Danny will intersperse the reading with songs. A booksigning will follow.
