The award-winning Dublin independent publisher Tramp Press, founded by Sarah Davis-Goff
and Lisa Coen
in 2014, is publishing some of Ireland’s best and brightest new voices, like acclaimed authors Mike McCormack
and Sara Baume
, while reintroducing some of Ireland’s marginalized writers through their Recovered Voices
Join us for two events to get to know these cutting edge publishers—who were famously part of the movement to make books published in Ireland eligible for the Man Booker Prize—and some of the writers they champion.
Mike McCormack: Solar Bones
Mike McCormack, author of Solar Bones (2016 Goldsmiths Prize, Bord Gais 2016 Irish Book of the Year), joins us to read from his funny, strange, and other-worldly novel.
Recovered Voices: Maeve Kelly and Dorothy Macardle
Join us to discover two Recovered Voices authors, Maeve Kelly, whose Orange Horses is a ferocious and witty collection of stories detailing the multilayered lives of Irish women rarely brought to the surface, and Dorothy Macardle, whose The Uninvited and The Unforeseen are masterful, bone chilling novels of the supernatural.
Maeve Higgins—author, comedian, and columnist—and Sam Underwood (Fear the Walking Dead, Fundamental Theatre Company) will read. Caroline Heafey will join Davis-Goff and Coen to discuss why these brilliant voices belong back in the canon.
