TALES OF AN IRISH IMMIGRANT

As part of our mixed art programming, we are very pleased to welcome Dermot McCann to NQ for an early evening reading from his enjoyable book 'McCanns Shorts: True Tales of an Irish Immigrant"

Come and enjoy a glass of wine, a delicious bite to eat and a story from a natural storyteller. 

In the tradition of true Irish storytelling, McCann’s Shorts takes you by the hand and leads you on a nostalgic, often hilarious and sometimes tragic journey of one man through the second half of the 20th Century. Mother meets father in war-torn Belfast. Boys will be boys in small-town Ontario in the ’50s. Near misses and perfect endings. The foreshadowing—and numbing experience—of loss. This collection delivers them all, in an original and authentic voice informed by memory and a thousand verbal retellings.

Everyone welcome.

BOOK READING AT 6:00pm

KICTHEN & BAR OPEN FROM 5pm
