Midweek Literary Reading Series w/ Seamus Scanlon • Thursday October 8 @6pm
The Midweek Literary Reading Series at Bruce’s Garden is thrilled to welcome Irish writer, Seamus Scanlon. His Collection, As Close As You’ll Ever Be (Cairn Press, 2012) was followed by The McGowan Trilogy (Arlen House, 2014). The Trilogy was produced during the first Irish Theatre Festival at The Cell Theatre (Sept. 2014) and later at the Kino-Teatr (Hastings, UK. Jul. 2015).
“Scanlon’s fierce, tough-minded stories effectively capture the tensions of Northern Ireland in you-are-there prose that will make you squirm.”
