Nick Cave and the King James Bible

Thursday 2 February 2017, 6.00PM

The Spring Term meeting of the Literature and Sacred Reading Group.

This term, our texts are a group of song lyrics by Nick Cave in combination with some Biblical texts upon which they draw. The discussion will be introduced by Ciarán Treacy, a PhD student in the Department of English and Related Literature currently working on Nick Cave.  

We customarily talk for one hour, and then those who want to head into town for some food.  If you would like to come for dinner it would be helpful (though not usually essential) to let James Williams know in advance.
