Alexander Poots – The Strangers’ House Book Launch
June 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for a Book Launch.
Alexander Poots will be in discussion with Malachi O’Doherty
A penetrating study and celebration of Northern Irish literature—telling the region’s story through the extraordinary novels and poetry produced by decades of conflict.
Northern Ireland is one hundred years old. Northern Ireland does not exist. Both of these statements are true. It just depends on who you ask. How do you write about a place like this? THE STRANGERS’ HOUSE asks this question of the region’s greatest writers, living and dead. What have they made of Northern Ireland – and what has Northern Ireland made of them?
