Sasha Dugdale and Tara Bergin will read at Shakespeare and Co, Paris, this March. 

Tara Bergin was born and grew up in Co. Dublin, Ireland. She is the author of two books published by Carcanet Press, This is Yarrow (2013) and The Tragic Death of Eleanor Marx (2017), which was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot and Forward Prizes, and chosen as a Best Poetry Book of the year by The Times and The Irish Times. Tara lectures part-time at Newcastle University (U.K.). 

Sasha Dugdale has published four collections of poetry, most recently Joy (Carcanet, 2017) which was a PBS Choice. The title poem 'Joy' won the 2017 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem. She is a translator of Russian poetry and plays, and former editor of Modern Poetry in Translation. She is writer-in-residence at St John's College, Cambridge.

Most events take place upstairs in the library (30 seats), on the ground level (50 seats), or outside in front of the bookshop (weather permitting). During the events, the sound from the readings and discussions is projected around the entire store. We recommend you arrive 15-30 minutes early to try and get a seat as there is limited space. All our events are free and open to all. Please note we take photos at our events which we share publicly on our website. 

To find out more, please see the bookshop's website.
