Dublin: A Writer’s City – BOOKED OUT Chris Morash
Chris Morash’s book, Dublin: A Writer’s City (Cambridge University Press) asks what it means to live in a city like Dublin, where literary culture has so long been a part of its identity, and almost every street has layers of stories to be discovered, from Swift and LeFanu to Joyce, Meehan and Boland. This walking tour returns the literary archaeology of Dublin: A Writer’s City to the streets from which it came, exploring the imagination’s potential to enrich urban life.
The meeting point for this tour is at the Printworks, Dublin Castle.
Chris Morash is the inaugural Seamus Heaney Professor of Irish Writing at Trinity College Dublin.
