Chris Haughton in conversation


Chris Haughton, whose work is the subject of our temporary exhibition, Purple Squirrel, is a picturebook writer and illustrator. Haughton, who often among the very first Irish writers encountered by young children, has written and illustrated six books: A Bit Lost, Oh No, George!, Shh! We Have a Plan, Goodnight Everyone, Don’t Worry, Little Crab and Maybe. For this conversation, recorded in MoLI’s colourful Learning Room in July 2021, Haughton is joined by MoLI’s Director – Simon O’Connor – as well as Zoe Brady, who is part of our team here at MoLI. Zoe holds a MPhil in Children’s Literature and was involved in the research process behind the exhibition.
