On Saturday the Irish chapter of the Historical Novel Society had our second meeting. We alternate between Belfast and Dublin so our members, no matter where they live, can attend meetings. We met in the Writers’ Room (that wasn’t pre-planned but how appropriate!) at the Gresham Hotel which gave us a feeling of Old World gentility – almost setting our meeting in a historical context, you could say…We didn’t set an agenda for this meeting; it was more a social gathering to chat and exchange ideas and information. Our meetings will evolve to suit the wishes of our group. Our next meeting will be in Belfast during August (date to be set). Anyone who would like to join us, please contact me.
