The Fictional Home: The Laureate for Irish Fiction at Galway International Arts Festival
Laureate for Irish Fiction Sebastian Barry has created many homes in in his fiction: from Annie Dunne’s home, to the mental hospital in The Secret Scripture, to the battlefields in Days Without End, to the Dublin tenements in A Long Long Way. As part of the First Thought Talks, Barry will discuss these fictional dwellings and their relationships to real places, and read relevant passages from the novels. The Laureate will be in conversation with Catriona Crowe, Curator of First Thought Talks.
Date: 21 July
Venue: Aula Maxima, NUI Galway
