On Thursday, 10th June, at 7.30 pm. I’ll be chatting – virtually! – with wonderful Irish book blogger, Mairéad Hearne, of Swirl and Thread about my new book ‘Emmet and Me’ which is set is 1960s Ireland
The evening will be hosted by fabulous indie bookshop, Palas Print, of Caernarfon, in conjunction with Honno Welsh Women’s Press
Mairéad and I will be discussing the setting of ‘Emmet and Me’ in 1960s Connemara – a beautifully bleak part of Ireland – the cruelty of life in Irish industrial schools and that system’s lasting legacy. We’ll be talking about what inspired the novel, about creating fiction from real life, and seeing the world through the eyes of child narrators.
