The Long-Winded Lady: Maeve Brennan, Forgotten Irish Writer
October 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10
Sinéad Gleeson and Robert West discuss the life and work of Irish writer and journalist, Maeve Brennan. Born in Dublin in 1917, Brennan moved to the U.S. with her family in 1934. She worked at Harper’s Bazaar, and in the 1950s and 1960s at The New Yorker where she wrote under the pseudonym “The Long-Winded Lady.” Brennan’s short stories and New Yorker collections have been unearthed in recent years, with 2017 editions published by The Stinging Fly in Ireland.
“Brennan is, for a new generation of Irish women writers, a casualty of old wars not yet won.” – Anne Enright
