Smarty Girl: Dublin Savage
An Audio Book Launch with Music, Song and Storytelling
in association with Irish American Writers and Artists
Tuesday, May 15 | 7:30 pm
A magical evening of music and story that conjures a vanished Dublin.
“Honor Molloy makes a most memorable debut with this fiercely funny portrait of the artist as a young girl…Noleen O’Feeney is irreverent, sarcastic, resilient, engaging, entertaining, and wise beyond her years. I didn’t want the book to end. ”
-Peter Quinn, Banished Children of Eve and Looking for Jimmy
Author Honor Molloy joins forces with actor Aedin Moloney (Dancing at Lughansa), author Kevin Holohan and Grammy Award-winner Susan McKeown to celebrate the publication of Smarty Girl: Dublin Savage. Molloy’s autobiographical novel is a tender, irresistible and raucous portrait of 1960s Dublin, as seen through the eyes of a precocious little girl with a fierce imagination. Smarty Girl: Dublin Savage will come alive with readings by Moloney, Holohan and Molloy, and music sung by McKeown.
Honor Molloy holds an MFA from Brown University and has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard, and a Pew Fellowship in the Arts. Born in Dublin, Honor Molloy lives in Brook
“as much as I love the book, Smarty Girl lives in the ear…this is an ensemble piece and Susan’s music is essential…”
