Guest Performers

Patricia Begley

For many years now Patricia Begley has been writing to simply live. Not to live in a trudge through hours and days and years, but to live each moment ransomed by joy, curiosity, love. To experience the intimacy of time’s gift, to eat one dinner a day each day, every sip and morsel a delicious glory, in addition to and supplementing all that came before and all still yet to come. Patricia will read some of her new work which touches on the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Adedotun Adekeye

Nigerian living in Galway for over five years is a poet, stage actor and author. He was a feature reader at the Over the Edge Reading last year and short-listed for the 2013 Cuirt/Over the Edge Showcase reading. Adedotun will be reading from one of his two books and reciting some of his poetry, looking at themes of colonialism and migration.
