An Evening with Michael Harding

An Evening with Michael Harding

Join celebrated author and playwright Michael Harding as he discusses his most recent title A Cloud Where the Birds Rise with Ennis Book Club Festival’s Artistic Director Dani Gill. 

In this stunning collaboration, stories and words written by Michael Harding throughout the years are brought to life by illustrator Jacob Stack in an exploration of ordinary moments of Irish life, moments of belonging, solitude, love, loss, and healing. From the beauty of falling snow, to the pain and love in goodbyes, to the shared lives and deaths of neighbours, and the sweeping landscape of Ireland, A Cloud Where the Birds Rise is a celebration of what it means to love, and live in the beauty of the ordinary, everyday. 

Michael Harding is one of Ireland’s favourite memoirists, known for his creative chronicles of ordinary life in the Irish midlands. He publishes a weekly column in The Irish Times, has written for the stage, and has published several novels. His memoirs include Staring at LakesHanging with the Elephant, Talking to Strangers, On Tuesdays I’m a Buddhist, and Chest Pain. 

Venue: glór
Cost: €15/€13
