Award-winning writer Louise Kennedy presents “Trespasses: Fact, Fiction and Memory,” a lecture based on her bestselling novel Trespasses, which won the British Book Awards Debut Novel of the Year, the An Post Irish Book Awards Novel of the Year, and the McKitterick Prize. Kennedy will read from the book and examine her use of news reports, family lore and her own childhood memories in creating a fictional account of ordinary lives blighted by sectarian and class conflict.
Kennedy will be introduced by Visiting Leonard L. Milberg ’53 Professor in Irish Letters Fintan O’Toole.
Part of the fall 2023 Fund for Irish Studies lecture series.
