'The Long Gaze Back: An Anthology of Irish Women Writers' is the 2018 selection for Dublin City Council's Dublin: One City, One Book. It includes a story by Maeve Brennan (The Eldest Child), the New York based Irish writer whose work was neglected for many years. As part of the festival we are very pleased to host an in-conversation event about Maeve Brennan, with the editor of 'The Long Gaze Back', Sinéad Gleeson, and Angela Bourke, the author of 'Maeve Brennan: Homesick at the New Yorker'. The event will be chaired by Aoife Barry, Assistant News Editor/Reporter the TheJournal.ie.
This event is free, and no booking is needed. All welcome!
