Evening Lecture

Monday 8 January, 7.00 pm

In this lecture, Steve Harvey will be covering his time in pre-independence South Sudan where, in 2008, he was safety and security officer for the Irish charity, GOAL.

Steve was a classmate of Gordon Sumner, subsequently Sting, and performed on the Fringe in the 70s with fellow student, Liam Neeson. He’s been an English teacher, youth worker, police officer, volunteer teacher in Iraq, lecturer in Modern Poetry at Suleimaniyah University, and Safety & Security Officer for an NGO in South Sudan. He’s organised readings by writers including Spike Milligan, conferences with speakers such as Anne Fine and run creative writing courses in Normandy with tutors A L Kennedy and Donny O’Rourke. He’s had poems published in the UK, Ireland, France and Iraq, and his memoirs, Between Dreams: Difficult Paths & Dangerous Places, were launched at Blackwell’s in Edinburgh in November 2016. The Irish writer, Eoin Colfer, called it, ‘A memoir that reads like a swashbuckling novel’, and of Steve’s poems Scottish poet, Liz Lochhead, said that some ‘will break your heart… some will make you laugh out loud.’
