Forever Young Book Launch

16th October @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


We are delighted to invite contributing writers and their guests to the official launch of ‘Forever Young’  on Saturday 16th October at 12pm.

The Event will include some short readings, as well as music and dance inspired by the book to celebrate the publication of this wonderful Souvenir of Writing on the day.

Copies will be distributed to all participants, as well as to the Laois Libraries archive and participating Nursing Homes.

Forever Young Creative Writing Project was devised by Denise Curtin Dunne. Using a mixture of prompts, suggestions and encouragement, this project aimed to encourage older members of our community to express memories of their early adult years in their own words, culminating in this collection.

Tickets limited to 2 per person.
