Join MoLI and Arlen House for the launch of Look! It’s a Woman Writer! Irish Literary Feminisms, 1970-2020, a collection of essays by female Irish writers, edited by Éilís Ní Dhuibhne. This collection features 21 writers from every corner of Ireland, writing about their literary lives and their experiences as writers working throughout some very pivotal decades for women in Ireland.
