Dublin launch of ‘History of Irish Working Class Writing’

Dear all,

A History of Irish Working-Class Writing, published by Cambridge University Press, will be launched on Friday 24 November, at 6pm, in Griffith College, Dublin. The special launch price at the venue will be €30.

I’d be really grateful if you could circulate this to contacts who may be interested in the volume, and do drop in for a glass of wine and a chat if you’re around Dublin on Friday evening.

Best wishes,
Michael
