The lovely Maureen Curran from North West Words has helped organise this event on Friday night in Letterkenny, Co Donegal. The venue is the award-winning Cafe Blend and the time is 8pm. I will be giving a reading and responding to questions from the reading groups. I’m really excited at the opportunity to talk about the book with book groups and engage with all the readers. Anyone in the Donegal/Letterkenny area who would like to pop along, booking details are down below. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible. I will also be giving a workshop the following morning in the same venue at 11.
North West Words and Cafe Blend are hosting an evening with author of ‘White Feathers,’ Susan Lanigan.
White Feathers was described in Sunday Times Culture as ‘a sweeping and engrossing tale of love, betrayal and death – masterful.’ The book tells the story of Eva Downey who jumps at the chance to attend finishing school, especially as she is about to be forced into marriage by her overbearing parents. At the school she finds kinship and unexpectedly, love. But when war breaks out in 1914 her family are pushing her into giving the man she loves a white feather of cowardice because he refuses to enlist. Eva’s decision will have devastating consequences for her and everyone around her.
White Feathers is available from O’Brien Press and is on sale in bookshops around the country, including Eason in Letterkenny.
The evening with Susan Lanigan will take place in Cafe Blend, High Road Letterkenny on Friday, February 27 from 8.00pm. Booking advised by calling (074) 9177787.
