Borders | Dalkey Book Festival

Borders | Dalkey Book Festival


Date: Thur 15 June 2017

Time: 7.30pm

Location: Finnegan's, Dalkey

Two writers from the North, Rosemary Jenkinson and Garrett Carr, along with two local writers, Katie Donovan and David Butler, respond to the notion of Borders – how to deal with them, get around them, transcend them or otherwise reinvent them. Introduced by Catherine Dunne, Lia Mills, Celia de Freine and Martina Devlin. Local writers are invited to read their own response to this theme in two minutes or less.

The Open Mic session, hosted by Colm Keegan, will begin at 8pm with poetry & prose submissions accepted from 6.30pm. Come and hear what your neighbours have to say on this urgent topic. Organised by Keep the Border Open initiative in association with Dalkey Book Festival.
