Irish Writers Centre Lunchtime Readings

The Irish Writers Centre kick off their Lunchtime Readings with a reading by the celebrated author of crime-noir fiction Ken Bruen on this Friday, 22 February at 1.00pm. Ken is the author of the award-winning Jack Taylor series which has been recently adapted for a series of TV movies.

His novel Blitz was also adapted for the screen in 2011 starring Jason Statham, Aidan Gillen and Paddy Considine. In 2010, London Boulevard was turned into a film starring Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley.  Ken's White Trilogy has recently been published and he has two more books on the way in 2013.

On the following Friday, 1 March, at 1.00pm Rosemarie Rowley will be the first poet of the Lunchtime Readings. In her work as a poet and essayist, she is a pioneering voice in the fields of ecology and women's issues - The Sea of Affliction (1987), being one of the first works in eco-feminism.

To date Rosemary has published five collections and is the four time winner of the Epic award in the Scottish International Poetry Competition. Her most recent books are Hot Cinquefoil Star (2002) and In Memory of Her (2004) and (2008) both published by Rowan Tree Press, Dublin.
