NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN: 21ST CENTURY IRISH WRITERS ON TRANSFORMATIONS PERSONAL & PUBLIC
FRIDAY, MAY 27 - 7PM
Ireland is a microcosm of our planet's social and political upheavals from World War One to the present--religion, gender, sexuality, tribe, class, national and transitional identity. From colony to Celtic tiger, writers have chronicled and critiqued the conventional wisdoms, inner and outer, that characterize the nation and the state of Ireland, continually poised between the old and the new. Join this wide ranging conversation, hosted by publishing icon Richard Nash, with the next generation of Irish writers including Liz Nugent and Danielle McLaughlin, sorting out what it means to be Irish, to be a writer.
Reservations at nypl.org/lpa/events & the welcome desk. Booking opens in April 2016.
