We are delighted that writer Evelyn Conlon has returned to complete her residency as recipient of The Ireland Funds Monaco Residential Bursary.
Evelyn is spending the first two weeks of September 2021 at the Princess Grace Irish Library (PGIL) and will give a talk on the evening of September 9th at 19h30. It will be a discourse on the value of literature and libraries. Evelyn will also read from the story Up at the Library, which was inspired by her time at the PGIL last year.
Due to health measures, numbers are restricted and all attending must present their 'Health Pass' and wear a mask. Unfortunately after the talk our usual drinks reception cannot take place, however, people are welcome to stay and mingle. We are delighted to host this wonderful, cultural moment and are thankful to Evelyn for making the trip to Monaco.
As a teaser, you can enjoy listening to Evelyn’s 14-minute YouTube talk with the PGIL on the eve of publication of her new Collection of Short Stories, Moving About the Place in April 2021.
