They were movers and shakers when it really mattered. They are literary survivors.

Eilis Ni Dhuibhne asked 21 writers who were born in mid-twentieth-century Ireland, north and south, to write about their literary lives. Look! It’s a Woman Writer! (Arlen House) is a collection of the responses she received. Join editor Eilis Ni Dhuibhne as she speaks to contributors  Liz McManus and Mary O’Donnell to discuss this collection of honest testimonies about life as a woman writer in Ireland. This collection of voices have participated in and created a new literary landscape for women in Ireland. Join us as we learn their stories.
