“Is it About a Bicycle?” — A series of conversations across disciplines

Is it About a Bicycle?: Writers in Conversation is a new series presented by Solas Nua in association with Georgetown Global Irish Studies Initiative that brings together contemporary Irish writers or writers based in Ireland, with leaders and experts from a variety of sectors to explore their shared interests across disciplines. The title comes from Flann O’Brien’s classic comic novel, The Third Policeman, a meandering tale about the nature of time, death, and the absurdity of human existence.
