Tony MACAULAY. Book launch of Little House on a Peace Line (Tony MACAULAY), Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Join us for a conversation with Tony MacAuley about his new book ‘Little House on the Peace Line’.

Tony grew up in the 1970s at the top of the Shankill Road an experience that has shaped his life and inspired his writing. Following successful spells as a paperboy and a breadboy, he has gone on to spend more than thirty years working for peace and reconciliation both in Northern Ireland and abroad. Tony is also a writer and broadcaster, and has contributed regularly to Radio Ulster for more than ten years. His first three books Paperboy, Breadboy and All Growed Up were critically acclaimed bestsellers. Little House on the Peaceline is his fourth book.

In his latest book, Tony tells the story of how in the 1980s he lived and worked on the peace line in North Belfast tackling poverty and unemployment and supporting young people to reject sectarianism, segregation and violence as a way of life.

As you might imagine there were not many Protestant lads from the Shankill working in the New Lodge at the time so Tony has an interesting tale to tell.

The venue is the Dark Horse Bar in the Cathedral Quarter. As always we are grateful to Willie Jack and the staff of the Dark Horse for their support of Slugger events.
