Writers Read is hosting a special event for students to have a conversation with Eimear McBride, moderated by our director, Sina Queyras on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 20th. On Thursday, March 21st, McBride will give a reading to the public.

Eimear McBride grew up in the west of Ireland and trained at Drama Center London. Her first novel, A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, took nine years to find a publisher and subsequently received a number of awards, including the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year, and the Goldsmiths Prize. Her second novel, The Lesser Bohemians, won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize, and the International Dublin Literary Award.
