Description

WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:

Being Various: New Irish Writing at the Irish Embassy

Readings and conversation with Eimar McBride, Kit de Waal, Lucy Caldwell and Paul McVeigh

A fantastic opportunity to share an evening with some of the finest Irish writers of our time.

What distinguishes nationality? Lucy Caldwell addresses this key question as editor of Being Various, New Irish Short Stories (Faber). Her vivid anthology explores a multi-cultural country at a transitional point in history, depicting lives and a sense of belonging in Ireland and also relevant to us all.

Word Factory is delighted to celebrate the anthology at a wine reception hosted by the Irish Ambassador Adrian O'Neill and Cathy Galvin at the Irish Embassy in London on Thursday 27th June 6pm-9pm.
