ECHOES 2019 Maeve Binchy and Irish Writers
This year ECHOES Festival theme is Community in Contemporary Writing in Ireland
What does community mean, what forms does it take, and how can it reflect the reality of life in Ireland today?
Maeve Binchy believed that shared experiences created and fostered communities. From the adventures of Irish writers abroad to our collective identity as an island nation, and from real life as reflected in fiction to today’s activism, ECHOES 2019 explores how the concept of community is manifest in contemporary writing in Ireland. Different discussion topics include Writing Home, All at Sea, Home Thoughts from Abroad and Writing in the Margins will all lead to a thought-provoking Festival from October 4-6th 2019.
