Short lecture: Jean Sulivan by Eamon Maher
To mark the death of the French priest-writer Jean Sulivan (1913-1980), there will be a commemorative evening in the Alliance Française on Thursday the 3rd of June at 18h. It will begin with a short talk by Dr Eamon Maher, Director of the National Centre for Franco-Irish Studies in IT Tallaght, on the theme: “The relevance of Jean Sulivan’s Writings for post-Catholic Ireland”. Dr Maher is the translator of Sulivan’s award-winning memoir, Anticipate Every Goodbye, and the author of Jean Sulivan (1913-1980): La marginalité dans la vie et l’oeuvre (L’Harmattan, 2008).
Following this talk, there will be some readings from Sulivan’s work with an appropriate selection of music by the poet, musician and former teacher Dominique Dao Huu Bao from Rennes, in Sulivan’s native Brittany.
