A reading by Selina Guinness

The School of English, Trinity College Dublin presents a reading by Selina Guinness, to celebrate her residency as Irish Writer Fellow in the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing.

Selina Guinness is a writer, lecturer and critic, with a keen interest in new writing. Her memoir, The Crocodile by the Door (Penguin Ireland), about life in the Dublin Mountains, was shortlisted for Best Biography in the Costa Book Awards and for the BGE Irish Book Awards in 2012. Her anthology, The New Irish Poets (Bloodaxe), promoted the generation of poets who began to publish in the 1990s. Her stories and essays have been anthologised in All Over Ireland (Faber), The Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction, 2005 - 2015 (New Island), and The Dublin Review Reader. She reviews regularly for The Irish Times, and is currently writing a novel set in Budapest.

She will read from and discuss her work in fiction and memoir, in the course of an interview with Professor Siobhán Garrigan, Loyola Chair of Theology, TCD.
