On the Trail of Lacadio Hearn

From Dublin to Durham, from Cincinnati to New Orleans, and from Martinique to Matsue we will be on the trail of legendary roving Irishman Lafcadio Hearn for a unique event at the University of Durham on September 25.

I'm honoured to be joining a symposium panel including keynote speaker John Moran of the Irish Times; expert in Irish Literature, Professor Stefan Regan; former Irish ambassador and Lafcadio Hearn biographer, Paul Murray; and Ayako Nasuno from the Yaezu Koizumi Yakumo Museum in Japan.

Join us for a celebration of one of Ireland's literary get you in the mood here's a link below to a piece on Hearn by John Moran in the Irish Times.
