Director’s Book Club
MoLI members are invited to the Director’s Book Club! The next edition of our Director’s Book Club is on Thursday, 11 March at 5pm. This month, we’ll be exploring Show Them a Good Time, Nicole Flattery’s debut short story collection – described as ‘a masterclass in the short story’ by Sally Rooney. We’re delighted that Nicole will join MoLI’s Director, Simon O’Connor, in discussing the book. And if you haven’t got a copy, Show Them a Good Time is now on sale in the MoLI shop.
In this Bright Sparks Creative Burst explore hidden stories by using everyday junk found around the house to inspire us to create some original pieces of work. With a little inspiration from Sarah Crossan’s #wearethepoets postcards, Sarah Webb uses blackout poetry and highlights words to make a poem. Download the materials to create some poetry or prose of your very own!
This week’s theme is inspired by Brendan Kennelly’s poem, ‘Begin’. The first line is ‘Begin again to the summoning birds’.
