His Name Is Spoken – A Celebration of Discworld
This November, the DCU School of English and DCU Writer-in-Residence Dave Rudden invites all fellow fans of Terry Pratchett to an informal celebration of Discworld at Dublin City University.
Join authors, actors, academics, and librarians (not the Librarian, unfortunately, he was busy) for dramatic readings of favourite Discworld scenes, panel discussions on wit and witchery, and our keynote interview – Douglas McKinnon.
Douglas McKinnon is an award-winning Scottish director, with credits including Jekyll, Doctor Who, Sherlock, and all six episodes of Amazon’s adaptation of Good Omens, the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Douglas will be interviewed by RTE’s Rick O’Shea about the process of bringing Pratchett’s work to the screen, as well as answering audience questions.
This event is suitable for Pratchett fans of all sizes and species, and we will even grudgingly admit mimes. Cosplay is not required but is very welcome!
Venue: Seamus Heaney Theatre, St. Patrick’s Campus, DCU
