      Lecture: 'The Letters of John McGahern'

      Tuesday 12 November, 7pm

      Speaker: Professor Frank Shovlin, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool

      Professor Frank Shovlin, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool considers a range of previously unpublished letters from John McGahern to a variety of correspondents, both personal, and within the publishing world. These letters help to contextualize a number of McGahern's well known novels and short stories over the years and allow insight into what was a markedly private writing life.

      Professor Frank Shovlin will produce the first authoritative edition of the letters of one of Ireland’s most respected 20th-Century writers, John McGahern after winning a prestigious British Academy/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowship.

      All welcome! Booking not required.
