Long Irish Shorts for the Summer: Reading Course with Brian Nellist
Join Brian Nellist for a nine-week reading adventure!
With more than fifty years’ experience teaching and sharing literature, Brian brings serious wisdom, deep attention and infectious gusto to this popular summer course.
Many short stories are too long to be read aloud at a single sitting so this year we’ll spread four of them over nine weeks. They are all by Irish writers: Sheridan Le Fanu, James Joyce, Elizabeth Bowen and William Trevor. They include a ghost, a New Year party, a memory of childhood and the discovery of an infidelity.
Texts for each week will be provided in instalments and if you miss a session the next issue can be sent on to you.
Sessions will run from 10.30am – 12.30pm for nine consecutive Tuesdays beginning Tuesday 31st May until Tuesday 26th July. All sessions will take place at this venue:
Get Into Reading
Lauries Community Centre
142 Claughton Road
The cost of the course is £60, with concessions for pensioners, students and those receiving income support (£50) and Get Into Reading members (£40).
