As Technology progresses, at what point will the distinctions between machines and humans become blurred? Can poetry still be a voice or rage and reason against oppression and discrimination? And Irish literature, what lies behind its recent renaissance?
These are the questions, themes, issues, and ideas which lie behind the 34th Cúirt International Festival of Literature, and while the full programme is announced tomorrow, the Galway Advertiser can reveal some of the writers coming to Galway from Monday April 8 to Sunday 14.
Among the highlights will be poets Rafeef Ziadah and Patricia Smith; Booker Prize winning Nigerian writer Ben Okri [pictured below]; acclaimed American novelist Joshua Cohen; classical musician Min Kym; leading Irish novelist Joseph O’Connor; The Irish Times’ Sinéad Gleeson; as well as Galway writers like Nicole Flattery, Mary O’Malley, Ndrelk Gjini, Aoibheann McCann, Gerry Hanberry, and Nuala O’Connor.
