Photographic exhibition “Still” will be on view in ITT Dublin library from October 2013 with official launch of the exhibit on Tuesday 15th October at 18:30 in the institute. The exhibition by Paul Butler visualizes passages from the writings of John McGahern and the evocation of time and place. This photographic exhibition revolves around the raw beauty and observations of a Leitrim countryside much loved by the writer.
On the evening of the 15th October Dr. Eamon Maher (McGahern expert) will host books clubs from the South Dublin region reading John McGahern’s “Memoir”. This is open to all book clubs but booking essential.
