In Conversation: Caoilinn Hughes & Garrett Carr
Queen’s Alumni and the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s are delighted to present Caoilinn Hughes in the second edition of The Book Club.
The book under discussion each time, will be a recent publication from a writer associated with the Seamus Heaney Centre’s creative writing programme. The event will feature the author themselves, in conversation with one of the Seamus Heaney Centre’s writers.
Former student at the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s, Caoilinn Hughes discusses her much anticipated second novel The Wild Laughter (Oneworld, 2020), with senior lecturer in Creative Writing, Garrett Carr. Caoilinn also talks about her short story I Ate it All And I Really Thought I Wouldn’t, which won Best Short Story at the An Post Irish Book Awards 2020. Queen’s Alumni Engagement Officer, Andy Nisbet Friel, introduces the event.
