With a shared love of history and debate John Bowman and Abie Philbin Bowman are ideal interviewer and interviewee.
KRF are delighted to bring you this exclusive interview as they discuss John Bowman’s book Ireland the Autobiography: One Hundred Years in the Life of the Nation, Told by its People. This absorbing and highly acclaimed book which has been researched over decades draws on eyewitness accounts, diaries and memoirs from the perspective of people who lived in these times, how they felt, their personal and societal experiences. These stories reflect how people were feeling whereas an official account can only tell us what happened. The power of personal testimony continues to influence.
Kildare Readers Festival is brought to you every year in October by Kildare County Library and Arts Service. For more information about KRF see http://www.kildarereadersfestival.ie/
