Adam Mars-Jones: Reading and Conversation
Wednesday, 20 March 2019, 6:30 – 8:30pm
A celebration of Adam Mars-Jones's residence as the inaugural Briena Staunton Visiting Fellow organised by the School of English.
Adam Mars-Jones has been a bold and original voice in British fiction and a leading critic for nearly 40 years. This March he is in Dublin as the inaugural Briena Staunton Visiting Fellow in the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing at Trinity College. Please join us for this special event to celebrate his fellowship, in which he will read from his work, and discuss his writing and career with Kevin Power.
Adam Mars-Jones's books include the novels Pilcrow and Cedilla and the memoir Kid Gloves. He reviews books for the London Review of Books and films for the Times Literary Supplement.
Kevin Power is a novelist, critic, and assistant professor in literary practice at Trinity College. His first novel, Bad Day in Blackrock (2008), was filmed as What Richard Did (2012), directed by Lenny Abrahamson.
The Briena Staunton Visiting Fellowship is an appointment made in alternating years by Trinity College Dublin and Pembroke College, Cambridge, which enables distinguished international writers to spend time writing and working with students in Dublin or Cambridge.
The Briena Staunton Visiting Fellowship has been generously endowed by Professor James Meaney, in memory of his aunt, Briena Staunton.
