TV3 Journalist Jenny McCudden and history lecturer Quincy Lehr, will don their literary hats this Thursday, 20 March, at 7pm for a reading in Galway City Museum.
Jenny McCudden is originally from Naas in county Kildare. She now lives in Galway and works as Western Correspondent for TV3 News. Jenny began her career as a journalist working for the Sunday World and the Westmeath-Offaly Independent. She spent five years in the UK, working for the BBC, before returning to take up her current position with TV3. She has always enjoyed writing fiction and poetry for sometime and has recently read at the 'Over the Edge' readings in Galway.
Quincy Lehr's work has been published in literary magazines and his first book, 'Across the Grid of Streets', will be published by Seven Towers in April, and launched in the City Museum.
Quincy earned a BA in history from the University of Texas at Austin and his doctorate (also in history) from Columbia University. He says he took up writing poetry along the way because 'it was cheaper than buying beer'.
The reading in Galway City Museum will start at 7pm, with some live music and tea/coffee provided.
