Book Launch: Here’s Me Here by Glenn Patterson


Tuesday 23 June


Here’s Me Here: Further Reflections of a Lapsed Protestant (New Island Books) features a wide and thought-provoking selection of Glenn Patterson’s writings. With his trademark wit and intelligence, Patterson offers his wry take on life on this planet – from Northern Ireland to Berlin, from Warsaw to Dublin and back again to Belfast.
All are welcome to this event which will be launched by writer Carlo Gébler

Boldly written with fresh perspectives, Here’s Me Here is packed with charm and honesty, humour and cutting insight.
‘Clear-eyed and compassionate’
