I was delighted to be invited to Concordia University, Montréal, as part of their excellent ‘Writers Read’ series. It was fantastic to perform with LeAnne Howe for a huge, eager crowd, and to meet so many wonderful students for a writing masterclass the following day.

My gratitude to Professor Rhona Richman Kenneally at the Department of Design, to Professor Michael Kenneally at the Department of Irish Studies, to Matina and Ali for all their help, and to Professor Sina Queyras at the Department of English for her generosity and her wonderful photos. She also took this portrait as part of her ongoing series of women writers in the Mordecai Richler Reading Room of Concordia University.
