Women’s Day marked with launch of new anthology series

Posted by Wally O Neill on

Wexford Women Writing Undercover is a new women's writing anthology edited by Deirdre McGarry and published by Red Books Press. It was launched via zoom (due to public health lockdown measures) on Sunday night, with readings from contributors in Ireland, the UK and the USA.

We had over eighty guests from all over the world including a number of the talented writer and artist contributors, Elizabeth Whyte from Wexford Arts Centre who launched the book, Deputy Johnny Mythen, Aileen and Nelly Lambert and Ed Barker who sang for us, and our editor Deirdre McGarry, and Rachel and Zeff who helped produce the edition.

We are getting an incredible response so get yours before they're all gone! Only €8 on www.theirishbookshop.com or click the link below;
