The pub lecture with Jan Carson was absolutely phenomenal. Carson joined us in our local pub in NIjmegen to discuss her work and life as a Northern-Irish author. Quite a few people had not read her work yet, but her enthusiasm and humour were so contagious that we did not notice how fast the time passed. We were able to ask a lot of questions and Carson's answers showed her creativity, personality, and love for Norhtern Ireland, books, and people. It was fascinating to hear her talk about her past and how she interweaves it with present Northern Ireland, as well as magical realism. We are so happy Jan Carson wanted to join us and cannot wait to read her work.
