Travelling in a Strange Land with David Park & Sonya Whitefield
7pm | £7.00

Award-winning author, David Park, one of the most important voices in contemporary Irish writing, has written nine previous books including The Light of Amsterdam, which was shortlisted for the 2014 International IMPAC Prize,and, most recently, The Poets' Wives, selected as Belfast's Choice for One City One Book 2014. David’s new novel, Travelling in a Strange Land, is a psychologically astute, expertly crafted portrait of a father's inner life and a family in crisis.

Following his reading, David will be in conversation with the photographer, Sonya Whitfield, who collaborated with him on an exhibition, which gives us her personal response to Travelling a Strange Land, which David will officially open.

“An extraordinary novel, at once startling and quietly brilliant. David Park is a one of Ireland's great novelists and this is, perhaps, his best.” Roddy Doyle
