We’ve two great readings planned with thanks to Brian Leyden and Averil Meehan

His most recent publication is the novel Summer of ’63 set during US President John F. Kennedy’s visit to Ireland.

Averil Meehan’s writing has been published in many literary journals and has won international literary competitions. Her poetry collection is Until Stones Blossom (Summer Palace Press) and her radio play A Family Christmas was broadcast by RTE.

North West Words acknowledges the financial support of the Arts Council, Donegal County Council and Earagail Arts Festival in making this reading possible as part of our North West Reading Series. The six events of this series will run one a month in July to December 2017.
