I had wondered how many of those named in the initial BBC report on the 2009 Hay Festival of Literature (Belfast) would actually be appearing here.. The BBC reports confirmation of two events at the Ulster Hall – Tony Curtis on the 27th May and the creator of The Corner, The Wire and Generation Kill, David Simon on 31st May. Any others out there? Here’s the Hay Festival homepage. Update Apparently, those are the only two main Festival events for Belfast.
