Published 01 August 2023

14 Henrietta Street presents Teatime Talks, a series of talks hosted by social historian Donal Fallon, inspired by the history and people of 14 Henrietta Street.

Peig McManus is the author of I Will Be Good: The Unforgettable Memoir of a Dublin Childhood and a Life Less Ordinary. In this Teatime Talk, she will discuss in conversation her recent best selling book. A memoir of a 1940s Dublin childhood, it later tells the story of how she became one of Ireland's foremost campaigners for educational reform. It is the story of the end of tenement Dublin and the beginning of a new city, far beyond the canals. Her book has been described as "an inspiring journey through the trials and triumphs of a remarkable Irish woman who refused to do what she was told."
