Talking places and writing at the Irish Literary Society
On January 17, 2018 In Travel books
Dervla Murphy will be looking back on her life as a traveller and writer in an event organised by the London-based Irish Literary Society on March 26. The venue is the Bloomsbury Hotel, where the society has been holding its monthly meetings since 2013 (and where I interviewed Murphy in 2015, on the publication of Between Rivers and Sea: Encounters in Israel and Palestine.) Murphy will be talking to Dorothy Allen, deputy chair of the society.
On May 21, the society has another event at which Iain Sinclair (see previous post) will be discussing borderlands with Garrett Carr, whose The Rule of the Land: Walking Ireland’s Border is on the short list for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year.
