"The prodigiously talented Jeffery Renard Allen is without question one of our most important writers." - Junot Diaz
New Dublin Press and the James Joyce Centre are delighted to bring you a reading by the acclaimed American novelist and poet Jeffery Renard Allen on Friday 20 January 2017.
A recent Guggenheim fellow, Allen is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Virginia. He is the author of five books, most recently the novel Song of the Shank (Graywolf Press, 2014), which is loosely based on the life of nineteenth century African American piano virtuoso Blind Tom. The novel was widely acclaimed, winning a place in the final of the PEN/Faulkner Award, a nomination for the Dublin Literary Prize and going on to win the CLMP's Firecracker Award. Allen is also the author of two other works of fiction, the novel Rails Under my Back (Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 2000) and the short story collection Holding Pattern (Graywolf Press, 2008), as well as two books of poetry.
This event will take place on Friday 20 January at 7PM in the James Joyce Centre, 35 North Great George's Street, Dublin 1.

Acclaimed poet, author, biographer Terese Svoboda visits Dublin from New York City for a talk and reading centred on her new biography of the radical Irish-American poet Lola Ridge.
NDP presents a collaborative performance by poets Annemarie Ní Churreáin, Kimberly Campanello, and Kinga Tóth. This collaboration arises from the poets' shared emphasis on the musicality and materiality of language – from Hungarian, to German, to Irish, to English, to Sanskrit – including the physical processes of shaping language in poetry performance. In this piece, the poets have meditated upon the themes of borders, cycles and the taking of life.
Featuring Kit Fryatt, Jonathan C. Creasy, Rory McArdle and music from Patrick Groenland.
