The whole office of the Humber School for Writers is abuzz because we are all big fans of Irish writer, Kevin Barry, ever since someone came in, agog at the quality of stories in his Dark Lies the Island. We went to see him read at the IFOA in 2013, and were delighted that the man on stage was a wonderful performer in addition to being a wonderful writer. Therefore we were delighted when he agreed to come to teach October 26 - 31, 2014, in our HSW workshop.
Kevin Barry is the winner of the 2013 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
Kevin Barry has had adoring reviews of his work, and we adore him, too. One of the reviews was even called, "You Must Read Kevin Barry."
We'll have more information soon on our Fall Workshop FAQ.
