Poésie et Prose

Rencontre littéraire: poet Katie Donovan, author Martin Page and historian Turtle Bunbury
Chair: Nora Hickey M’Sichili, Director, Centre Culturel Irlandais

Katie Donovan has published four books of poetry including Rootling: New and Selected Poems (2010). She has written on the marginalisation of Irish women writers and co-edited the anthology, Ireland’s Women: Writings Past and Present in 1993.

Frenchman Martin Page’s latest novel L’apiculture selon Samuel Beckett (2013) is composed as a journal kept by a young PhD student who has been asked by Beckett to classify his paperwork. It reflects upon Beckett’s stature today, in terms of both his image and legacy.

Turtle Bunbury is a best-selling author, travel writer and historian. The fourth volume of his Vanishing Ireland series will be launched this evening. These invaluable portrait interviews with the ‘unsung elders of Irish society’ were produced in collaboration with photographer James Fennell.
