Mary will talk about her latest book, Gallowgate, the author’s third historical novel. She will talk about the book, the research required and writing in general.

Gallowgate is a story about three Irish sisters fleeing poverty and starvation in Wicklow, only to discover extreme hardship amidst the stench and squalor of mid nineteenth century Glasgow’s Gallowgate.

This is a story of survival, social history and second chances, Mary Edward’s Gallowgate, whilst fictitious, offers an informative look at the lives of young Irish immigrants in 1850s Glasgow.

Everyone welcome. Free entry and refreshments
