The Northern Ireland Assembly Commission in association with the Linen Hall Library is to host an exhibition celebrating the literary life of local writers. From 30 June to 13 September 2014, the Great Hall in Parliament Buildings, Stormont will be the home for a landmark exhibition, entitled 'Bog Meadow and Surrounding Hills'.

Named after a Michael Longley couplet, the exhibition focuses on the men and women who have striven to live the writer's life in Northern Ireland and those born here who took their typewriters and pens abroad.

The exhibition will also feature many rare artefacts from the Linen Hall's collections and will embrace the many different aspects of writing, publishing and reading.

Monday - Friday 9am - 4pm
