Event description
The Ulster Book Club; 9 counties, 9 writers, 9 months

About this event

Take a journey across the nine counties of Ulster through the writing of nine contemporary writers and poets. Each month, we will delve into a literary presentation of a county and discuss what the stories tell us about the sense of place and time which the work represents. Each of the books is deeply rooted in the person and the place. They cover themes of environment, connection, loss and love. Each piece of work is unique yet there is a universality of experience which is inescapable, regardless of where we choose to call home.
