David Morgan O’Connor Farewell Reading

You are invited to attend a reading by our fall resident, David Morgan O’Connor. Along with other pieces, David will be reading some of the work he’s been writing while living in the house. He will also answer questions about his work. The reading is free, but please bring something to drink if you like and join us in the house where Jack Kerouac wrote The Dharma Bums.

David Morgan O’Connor is an Irish-Canadian writer based in Barcelona. He has an MFA from University College Dublin & the University of New Mexico. A contributing reviewer for Rhino Poetry and fiction editor at Bending Genres, his work has appeared in Splonk, A New Ulster, Crannog, Opossum, The New Quarterly, The Irish Times, Best New British & Irish Poets, The Guardian, and others. He is the recipient of the 2021 Cuirt International Award for Fiction, the Tom Gallon Award, and extremely thrilled to be the Fall 2021 Kerouac Project Fellow.
