FWIN’s Book Club Book of the Month is Sinead O’Connor’s Autobiography “Rememberings.” What better way to remember Sinead, than to speak with the Derry Girls that worked with her?Set in Derry in 1984, “Hush-A-Bye-Baby” follows the lives of four school friends (Goretti, Majella, Sinead and Dinky) who live in the Bogside and Creggan estates. At the age of 15 they are full of youthful exuberance and boys feature largely in their interests. The film explores Irish attitudes to sexuality at a time when religion was an important foundation of social behaviour.Lead actress Emer McCourt won several international awards for her performance as Goretti. The film features the acting debut of the young Sinéad O’Connor who also wrote the musical score. After the screening we will have a Q+A with local female director Margo Harkin. This is a fantastic opportunity to get the behind-the-scenes scoop on the film, so have your questions ready.This screening is free of charge and is part of the FWIN Book Club which is funded by Arts Council NI.Places can be booked by emailing or calling 02871 266291
