About this event

In Conversation: The Moon over Kilmore Quay with Carmel Harrington and Esther Hayden

Join Carmel Harrington and Esther Hayden as they discuss the importance of location in her latest novel, The Moon Over Kilmore Quay. Carmel will also share her own Irish immigrant experience and how a research trip to Brooklyn, New York, played an essential part in her writing process.

“Harrington cleverly combines past and present, bringing the reader on a journey from Wexford to Brooklyn, blending stories of homesick immigrants with those of settled American-Irish and their friends. A heartwarming story, that shows the power of friendship, family and heritage.” Sunday Independent
