Evening of Irish Music & Poetry
HoCoPoLitSo's guest for its 39th Annual Irish Evening is novelist Belinda McKeon. She will read from her work starting at 7:30 p.m., February 10, 2017, at the Smith Theatre, Horowitz Center for Visual and Performing Arts on the campus of Howard Community College.

McKeon's reading will be followed by Narrowbacks Michael Winch (fiddle) and Dominick Murray (guitar/vocals) along with Eileen Korn Estes, Jesse Winch, Terence Winch, and Linda Hickman in a concert of traditional Irish music with stepdancers from the Culkin School.

An award-winning playwright and journalist, Ms. McKeon's first novel Solace won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and the Sunday Independent Best Newcomer Award and was named Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book of the Year in 2011. In 2015, her second novel Tender was published. Shortlisted for Novel of the Year at the 2015 Irish Book Awards, Irish Times author John Boyne said of Tender "the best Irish novel I've read since The Spinning Heart, a work rich with wisdom, truth and beauty."

Previous featured writers included: Anne Enright, Emma Donoghue, Paula Meehan, Colum McCann, Frank McCourt, Colm Toibin, and Paul Muldoon.
