Kit de Waal reading

Kit de Waal will be visiting us to give a reading on Wednesday April 3rd at 1 pm in the Millstream Common Room. Kit is a powerful speaker, a passionate activist and one of the most fascinating and accomplished writers of her generation.
 
Her debut novel My Name is Leon won the Irish Novel of the Year Award, 2017, and was shortlisted for the Costa and Desmond Elliott prizes, and was followed by 2018's The Trick to Time, which garnered rave reviews internationally. She has written extensively on the need for the publishing industry to become more inclusive and on the exclusion of working class people from the arts and media. At her UL event she will be introduced by our excellent Creative Writing lecturer, twice Booker Prize long-listed Donal Ryan.
