Constellations’ Reflections from Life with Sinéad Gleeson

July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

With Introduction by Una Mannion

Sinéad Gleeson reads from her critically acclaimed collection of essays, Constellations, which was published in April 2018.

Utterly magnificent. Raw, thought-provoking and galvanising – Eimear McBride

How do you tell the story of a life that is no one thing? How do you tell the story of a life in a body, as it goes through sickness, health, motherhood? How do you tell that story when you are not just a woman but a woman in Ireland?

In these powerful and daring essays, Sinéad Gleeson does that very thing. In writing that is in tradition of some of the finest life writers such as Olivia Laing, Maggie O’Farrell and Maggie Nelson, and yet still in her own spirited, warm voice, Sinéad Gleeson takes us on a journey that is both personal and yet universal in its resonance. 

”Sinead Gleeson is an absolute force. If you want to know where passion and tenacity are born, read this book Anne Enright” – Anne Enright
