Five Leaves is pleased to present a series of online events on New Irish Writing. Tonight the readings from Belfast Stories are in association with Doire Press, a leading publisher in the West of Ireland.
This event includes readings from Belfast Stories, followed by discussion about the landscape and urban areas that inspired the Stories, and about Irish writing in general. The talks will be hosted by Deirdre O’Byrne from Five Leaves Bookshop and Nottingham Irish Studies Group, and the event will also be joined by a representative from Doire Press.
Rosemary Jenkinson is a poet, playwright and short story writer. Originally from Belfast, she returned there in 2002 after living in several European countries.
Michael Nolan – not the Michael Nolan from Bucks Fizz – is published in The Stinging Fly and The Lifeboat. Currently finishing his PhD at Queen’s University, Belfast, he is the fiction editor of The Tangerine.
This event will be BSL interpreted. PLEASE NOTE that due to the way Zoom is implemented on the iPad you will not be able to see the interpreter during any screensharing – if this is a problem for you please use another device to access the event.
Supported with National Lottery funding by Arts Council England.
