Writing Belfast with Lucy Caldwell, Nandi Jola & Padraig Reagan
Belfast Book Festival is delighted to welcome to the stage Lucy Caldwell, Nandi Jola and Padraig Reagan, in conversation with Glenn Patterson, on all things writing Belfast: What do the poetics of place mean to these writers; as readers do we consciously search for both realism and escapism?
Lucy’s These Days (Faber, March 2022) is a haunting novel of the Belfast Blitz; Nandi’s poetry (Home is neither here nor there, Doire Press, April 2022), explores the themes of home and she talks of her writing being “something between Belfast and Africa”; Padraig’s debut collection Some Integrity (Carcanet Press Jan 2022) is a book full of social encounters and exchanges, against a landscape as a form of art.
