Literature and the Peace Process in Northern Ireland
Marilynn Richtarik’s book Getting to Good Friday: Literature and the Peace Process in Northern Ireland describes literary reactions and contributions to the peace process during the fifteen years preceding the Agreement and in the immediate post-conflict era, demonstrating the extent to which authors sought both to comment on and to influence contemporary political developments. Through engaging narrative, creative writing emerges as both the medium of and a metaphor for the peace process itself. At The Linen Hall, Professor Richtarik will answer questions about the book and read an extract from it.
