We are celebrating Cork World Book Festival with a stellar line-up of authors. Our first speaker is Sr Anne Lyons, author of ‘The Story of Nano Nagle: Life Lived on the Razor’s Edge’.
Abandoning a life of privilege, position and wealth, Nano Nagle moved to align herself to live and work in her beloved city of Cork, in solidarity with those made destitute. Driven by a burning passion to help Christ’s marginalized, she dared not only to dream a better life for them but to make this impossible dream a lived reality. This was the great miracle of her life. At a time when the role of women in shaping society was severely restricted, she lived on the razor’s edge, a woman fearless before a tyrannical world.
Join us for a live book talk with Sr Anne Lyons and Dr Danielle O’Donovan, with a Q&A afterwards.
