The Babel Lecture: ''Exploring the Book' - Galway City Library

The first Babel Public Lecture Series entitled 'Exploring the Book' will come to a close with a lecture by Dr Kate Quinn on Tuesday, 1 March, at 6.30pm in Galway City Library.
Titled ’Criminal Passions: The Perennial Appeal of Death and Detection’ it will be delivered by Dr Kate Quinn, Spanish, NUI Galway.
The lecture is open to members of the pubic and entrance is free.

According to Dr Lillis Ó Laoire, Head of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, “Dr Kate Quinn’s enticingly ’noir’ title manages to mention two of the great themes, passion and death, and promises to bring the first series to an appropriately intriguing completion. Her talk will deal with crime fiction and inform us about why it is we are so drawn by books in this genre.”
There will be a reception before this final lecture from 6.00pm to 6.30pm. The series will be formally closed by Dr Edward Herring, Dean of the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies, NUI Galway.
