GCN Town Hall Talk: Queer Representations in Irish Writing

Date
Saturday, 20 May
Time
2:00PM
Venue
Belvedere House
Price
€10 / €8

Journalist and writer Brian Finnegan is joined by a panel of Irish writers, including John Boyne, Mary Dorcey, Denis Kehoe and Claire Hennessy for a special edition of GCN's Town Hall Talks. Using as a starting point the writing of ‘Tom Lennon’, who in the 1990s published the novels Crazy Love and When Love Comes To Town under a pseudonym for fear of losing his job, the panel will explore and celebrate the increasingly bold and diverse representations of queer people and culture in Irish writing.

Presented in partnership with GCN.
