THIS NEVER WAS MY TOWN - reading
10 Days in Dublin - an indie culture fest - is now on and I will be reading at it on Friday (the glorious 12th!) at This Never Was My Town, a multi-city event organised by writer/blogger Marcel Krueger. Venue: the Irish Writers' Centre.
From Marcel: "This Never Was My Town is a series of expat-themed, cross-European prose and poetry readings hoping to evaluate the question of how much identity is linked with the place you live in. Is a city adding to your personality, or does location have no influence whatsoever in our globalised and interlinked world any more? A group of expat writers from Dublin and other cities in Europe (patched in via screen) will read from their works and reflect on placelore, identity and if it's really possible to make a place 'yours'." . I am exiled in Galway, hence my participation.
