Beyond the Centre with Pat Boran, Anne Enright and Lisa McInerney
In conversation with Seán Rocks IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE IRISH WRITERS CENTRE
The Dublin Book Festival opening event will celebrate the diversity, progress and creativity within the Irish literary landscape in recent years. Taking cues from the essays in Beyond the Centre (New Island Books), an anthology commissioned by the Irish Writers Centre to mark its 25th anniversary, Seán Rocks of RTÉ Radio 1’s Arena will be getting to the heart of contemporary writing with contributors Pat Boran, Anne Enright and Lisa McInerney. Expect to hear candid truths about what it’s like to be a writer in modern Ireland; the marginality, the isolation, the insecurity – financial and personal – and, most importantly, what makes all of these challenges worthwhile at the end of the day.
