Venue: Dingle Bookshop
Úna-Minh was adopted as a newborn from Hanoi, Vietnam, in 1991 by a single woman from the Kerry. In her first book, Úna-Minh writes honestly and humorously about tackling trolls, Irish identity and racism, gaming and her passion for creating accessible content in Irish. Sprinkled throughout with funny and relatable frása an lae (“phrase of the day”) her book is a heartwarming, important story of diverse, contemporary Irish Life.
Úna-Minh will be in conversation with Dr Leeann Lane. Dr Lane is a lecturer at DCU. Her primary area of research is modern Irish history with a specialisation in nineteenth and twentieth-century gender and women’s history.
