Cecelia Ahern visited Eason Belfast at the weekend to sign copies of her latest book, One Hundred Names. We took the opportunity to hit her with a pop quiz on her childhood memories of reading:
Eason: What were your favourite childhood books?
Cecelia: The Famous Five, The Babysitter’s Club, Sweet Valley Twins and The Magic Faraway Tree.
Eason: Who was your favourite author as a child?
Cecelia: Enid Blyton.
Eason: What’s your favourite book to read to children?
Cecelia: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
Her new book Nigellissima takes inspiration from Italian cooking to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate, pronto. At the heart of Italian cookery lies a celebration of food that is fresh, tasty and unpretentious; Nigella Lawson reflects this in recipes that are simple and speedy, elevating everyday eating into no-fuss feasts.
We hope to see you there!
He came, he saw, he… obliviated?

Very few braiiiiinnnnssss were eaten, and most of our staff’s limbs remained intact… however, plenty of questions were asked and books were signed (in blood, of course).
Unfortunately one fan, Laurence Cole, got a bit too close to Darren and he was never seen again!

Due to be published on October 4th, Oblivion is the final instalment in the awesome Power of Five series.
For fans of Joy Division, New Order and the legendary tale of Ian Curtis – this one is not to be missed! Peter Hook will be in conversation with Nadine O’Regan in Eason O’Connell St at 7:30pm on Monday, 8th October. Tickets are available from the O’Connell St information desk, or by calling (01) 858 3815.
As co-founder of Joy Division, Peter Hook was the inspiration behind a band that would shape the course of popular music. He provided the propulsive bass guitar melodies of “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, and was at the heart of the sound that came to define an era and inspire a generation. In Unknown Pleasures, he tells the story of that time; of the music, the madness, the band members and the other characters on the scene that made it the unforgettable, iconic time it was.
Peter’s latest book, Unknown Pleasures is available now in-store or online at Easons.com.
