The first of this year’s The Books That Made Me session with the award-winning author Bernard MacLaverty.

Bernard MacLaverty was born in Belfast and lived there until 1975 when he moved to Scotland with his wife, Madeline, and four children. He has been a Medical Laboratory Technician, a mature student, a teacher of English and occasionally a Writer-in-Residence (Universities of Aberdeen, Augsburg, Liverpool John Moore’s and Iowa State). After living for a time in Edinburgh and the Isle of Islay he now lives in Glasgow. He has published five novels, including Cal, Grace Notes (which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize) and Midwinter Break, six collections of short stories most of which are gathered into Collected Stories (2013). He has written versions of his fiction for other media - radio plays, television plays, screenplays and libretti. Bernard will be joining us to discuss the most important books in his life.
