Writers in the Library: Patrick O'Keeffe


Patrick O'Keeffe will read from his new novel at UT's Writers in the Library on Monday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in the John C. Hodges Library Auditorium. The reading is free and open to the public.

The Visitors, O'Keeffe's lyrical first novel, set in America and Ireland, moves back and forth in time and place to weave the story of two Irish families forever linked by love, secrets, and their heritage. Illuminating the precarious balance of family intimacies and how stories can carry over from one generation to the next,The Visitorsfurther delivers on the elegant prose and plotting that earned O'Keeffe critical acclaim for The Hill Road, his collection of four, connected novellas set in a fictional Irish dairy farming village.

O'Keeffe himself was born on an Irish dairy farm in County Limerick. He has lived in the US for over twenty years -- at first as an undocumented immigrant, before gaining his Green Card.He is currently an assistant professor of creative writing at Ohio University.
