Place and Peace: Northern Ireland, Scotland & Europe
 
Date: 19:00, Thursday 28th March
Venue: Tron Theatre, Victorian Bar, 63 Trongate, Glasgow G1 5HB
 
Scottish PEN Writers for Peace Committee brings together Bernard MacLaverty, Ciara MacLaverty and Donal McLaughlin to explore issues around peace in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Europe. This reading by writers from Northern Ireland, long resident in Scotland, takes peace and its place in the world today as its theme, its aspiration and its hope. As Northern Ireland, questions of the border and the UK’s relationship with Europe takes centre stage across the country, join us as we explore the intersection between peace, place and writing with these three leading writers.
 
This event is free and open to all. Please contact box office: Tel. 0141 552 4267 for bookings. Guests may collect their tickets at the theatre either prior to the event or on the day of the event.
