The LIVE Network is a new literary network in Ireland which Roscommon Arts Centre is a member of that supports writers, publishers and literary producers to share work.
The venture has emerged from the Literary Audience Development Scheme run in association with Words Ireland.
The Network has created a digital series during the lockdown featuring six Irish writers. Each writer speaks to Audience Development Officer Dani Gill about their latest book over a cup of tea, coffee or a glass of wine! Intimate and insightful, the series will give readers a chance to hear an extract from the book, get a sense of the story and meet the writer virtually, in their home.
The online programme is as follows:
May 8th – An Irish Coffee with Alan McMonagle
May 15th – An Espresso with Kevin Barry
May 22nd – A Very Cork Cup of Tea with Hilary Fannin
May 29th – Black Tea and Birdsong with Jane Clarke
June 5th – A Glass of Wine with Elaine Feeney
June 13th – Liz Nugent
Events will all be streamed via the LIVE Network’s You Tube Channel which can be subscribed to here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbM2cq1wKpnP1dKqrs7XnCQ
From Friday 8th May
