In Conversation: Louise Kennedy & Lucy Caldwell
Queen’s Alumni and the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s are delighted to present Louise Kennedy for the latest edition of the Book Club.
Louise Kennedy is a prose writer, and one of the inaugural Ciaran Carson Writing and the City Fellows at Queen’s. Her publication record includes fiction in journals such as The Tangerine, The Stinging Fly, Banshee and Winter Papers, food writing for The Guardian and Irish Times, short scripts for RTE Radio 1 and a commission for BBC Radio 4 Short Works. Her stories have won prizes and she was short-listed for Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award in both 2019 and 2020.
This is a wonderful opportunity to talk with two exceptional writers, with our host Lucy Caldwell’s latest short story collection Intimacies, having just hit the shelves. Lucy was a SHC Fellow in 2019. She’ll be leading the discussion on Louise’s debut short story collection, The End of the World is a Cul de Sac, published by Bloomsbury in April 2021.
