The Fifth Annual Irish Pages Lecture
Friday, 7 May 2010 at 7.30pm
Belfast Exposed, 23 Donegall Street, Belfast

Free Entry & Refreshments

To Scullabogue Backwards from Belfast
Against Sectarian Preconceptions
by Patricia Craig
Introduced by Glenn Patterson

A critic, essayist and anthologist, Patricia Craig was born and grew up in Belfast and
lived for many years in London before returning to Northern Ireland in 1999. She
has written biographies of Elizabeth Bowen and Brian Moore, and edited many
anthologies, including The Oxford Books of Ireland, English Detective Stories and Modern
Women’s Stories, The Belfast Anthology and The Ulster Anthology. Her memoir Asking for
Trouble was published in 2007. She is a regular contributor to The Irish Times, The
Independent and the Times Literary Supplement.

In case anyone's wondering, Scullabogue is the name of a townland in County Wexford (VInegar Hill and all that), at which a certain barn was used as a staging post for the rebels in the Irish 1798 Rebellion. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it (the end part rhymes with vogue, if you're not sure how we pronounce it here)?
