Event description

Description

Edna O'Brien is one of the true giants of Irish literature. Her earliest work was banned by the Irish state, while sixty years later her novels continue to provoke controversy and debate. In recognition of her influential place in Irish culture and society, Dublin City Council has made her Country Girls Trilogy (1960-64) its One City, One Book choice for 2019. To celebrate this, University College Dublin invites you to visit the James Joyce Library, where the author's papers (1996-2006) are held. Join Special Collections Librarian Evelyn Flanagan and Irish Research Council Scholar Dan O'Brien as they discuss archives in general and Edna O'Brien's in particular. See how the letters light up the fiction, how the archive illuminates the work.
