In November 2018 Westmeath County Libraries will present a series of three seminars hosted by Ciara Murphy exploring three different texts which explore the Irish experience of the First World War. These seminars highlight the importance of both the given and the imagined image, and the dominant and silenced voices of war. They illuminate the intricacies and the challenges in representing war through different literary media and they allow participants to reflect on the war and its impact.
The first seminar took place on Thursday 1 November: ‘Over-the-top’: The heroic male (A long long way by Sebastian Barry).
The three seminars will all take place at 3pm in Aidan Heavey Public Library, Athlone, Co. Westmeath N37 N625. All welcome, admission free but booking required: 090-6442157 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
