Irish Literature Ahead

Next week, the Marathon d’avril will celebrate Irish literature. I know you will be in the home stretch of the revision period, but 2 events drew my attention, and I think it might be worth your while attending at least one of them :
Une bibliothèque irlandaise, mercredi 6 avril 2016, à 16h30
Médiathèque José Cabanis – 1 allée Chaban-Delmas à Toulouse
(métro A : Marengo SNCF) Entrée libre et gratuite – dans la limite des places disponibles

Writer Joseph O’Connor will discuss some of the greats of contemporary Irish literature, with readings by Didier Sandre. FYI, O’Connor is the brother of singer Sinead O’Connor and his latest novel literally rocks since it is about a rock star!
Claire Keegan, who is, to my mind, the most striking voice to have come out of Ireland in recent years, will be the guest of a presentation & reading
jeudi 7 avril 2016, à 18h
Librairie Ombres Blanches – 3 rue Mirepoix à Toulouse
(Métro A : Capitole) Entrée libre et gratuite – dans la limite des places disponibles

Her Walk the Blue Fields is one of the most emotionally challenging and poetic reads, you could do worse than go and meet this extraordinarily gifted writer.
