About Caroline Foran

Caroline Foran is a number 1 bestselling author living and working in Dublin. She has a degree in Communications and a Masters in Film and TV from DCU. Outside of her two hit books – Owning It (Own It in the US) and The Confidence Kit – she works as a freelance journalist, writing for some of Ireland’s top publishers, both in print and online. She runs an interiors publishing platform alongside friend and business partner Jo Linehan: GAFF Interiors. Carolinequickly became a household name when her first book was released in 2017. Owning It – chronicling Caroline‘s experience of anxiety and her incredibly practical approach to managing it – went to number one for 16 weeks. Since then, Caroline has appeared at countless events, giving keynote speeches about anxiety and stress management, as well as discussing confidence and fear – the subject of her bestselling follow up book. Caroline has appeared on everything from The Late Late Show to The Tonight Show, as well as all of the major radio stations. Her two books have been sold internationally and in 2019, her work will hit the United States. In March she will travel to NYC on a book tour. Her podcast – which also went straight to number one upon its release – is her latest venture. Owning It: The Anxiety Podcast is a relaxed, discussion based podcast in which author Caroline shares her experiences, what worked for her and what didn’t, along with a whole array of brilliant experts who weigh in on topics such as the fear of public speaking, anxiety and nutrition, why anxiety is something we experience from a psychology perspective and plenty more. Then, among the experts, Caroline chats to a series of familiar faces, all of whom have experienced crippling anxiety in their own way. She finds out how it manifested for them, how they cope on a daily basis, and ultimately what advice they have for the engaged listener.

Books will be available for purchase on the evening for $15.
