Mary Lavin is an Irish writer who has fallen out of the public consciousness in recent years. This night aims to introduce her work to a new generation and is curated by Deirdre Kinahan. It includes names such as Steve Wickham (The Waterboys) and Actress/Musician Lisa Lambe, among others. It takes place in the Unitarian Church this Friday and should be an interesting night!
