We are delighted to invite you to the next the corridor event in 2018. On Friday, October 19th, we will be officially launching our first print publication at the shiny new home of the best independent bookstore in the northeast, Roe River Books Dundalk. Our publication is a small magazine that contains a look back on last year’s events with exclusive images by Vera Drebusch and Seán Hillen, amongst others, and also an outlook to the future of the corridor and new essays and stories by Garrett Carr, Evelyn Conlon, Marcel Krueger and Paul Scraton.
We are also delighted to welcome Berlin-based writer Paul Scraton to Dundalk again to launch the publication with us. Paul is a British-born writer and editor who has lived in the German capital for over a decade, and has extensively written about places, borders and European identities. His latest book ‘Ghosts on the Shore: Journeys along Germany’s Baltic coast’ (Influx Press, 2017) explores the German coast and the GDR history of his wife’s family through a partially fictionalized travelogue.
On the launch night, Paul and Marcel Krueger will read from the the corridor publication, Paul with introduce ‘Ghosts on the Shore’ and discuss the old borders of Louth and Berlin (also from the Brexit perspective of a British citizen living in Germany) with Roe River Book’s Tom Muckian and Anne Mager, independent curator and co-initiator of the corridor.
Our publication will be available to purchase on the night for a special price of 5 Euros.
