Poetry Reading with Lara Bozabalian and Moya Roddy

18th September 2018 @ 5:30 pm

Lara Bozabalian is the author of The Cartographer’s Skin and Tourist, a spoken-word poet, and an impassioned teacher. She has featured at literary festivals across Canada, in Singapore, and at TEDx (‘Sharing Passion Through Poetry’). She writes of teaching life and the voices often relegated to corners; after the school shootings in Parkland, Florida, her poem on Rattle’s ‘Poets Respond’ went viral.

Out of the Ordinary is Galway-based Moya Roddy’s debut poetry collection. Shortlisted in 2017 for the Hennessy Award, her poems have been published in The Irish Times, Stoney Thursday, Crannog and Boyne Berries. Her short story collection, Other People, was long-listed for the Frank O’Connor Award, and novel The Long Way Home was described in The Irish Times as ‘simply brilliant.’

Admission €5
