beatleboneIrish author Kevin Barry will read from his new novel, Beatlebone (Canongate, 2015), on Nov. 18 at 1 p.m. in Connolly House at  300 Hammond St. Beatlebone imagines a trip by former Beatle John Lennon to Ireland’s west coast in 1978. Earlier this month he won the 2015 Goldsmiths Prize for Beatlebone. The prize, established in 2013, honors British and Irish writers for “fiction that breaks the mold or opens up new possibilities for the novel form.” Barry’s previous work includes City of Bohane, which won the 2013 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.  Registered is requested.
