Kevin Barry Talk
Wednesday 10 July 7:30pm Free Entry
Join us on Wednesday 10 July at 7.30 pm to hear award winning writer Kevin Barry discuss his latest novel NIGHT BOAT TO TANGIER in an event organised with the Stonecoast in Ireland creative writing programme.
It’s late one night at the Spanish port of Algeciras and two fading Irish gangsters are waiting on the boat from Tangier. A lover has been lost, a daughter has gone missing, their world has come asunder – can it be put together again? Night Boat to Tangier is a novel drenched in sex and death and narcotics, in sudden violence and old magic. But above all, it is a book obsessed with the mysteries of love.
Tickets are free but booking is essential.
