Dr J. Fitzgerald launches her new book on Helen Waddell at QUB (July 2014)

Part of my research into the life of Helen Waddell involved speaking with the knowledgeable Dr Jennifer FitzGerald, who launched her new book on Helen Waddell at Queens University Belfast.

Poet Sinead Morrissey of the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queens University Belfast School of English, also read, both of her own poems and Helen Waddell’s.

My research was made possible by an Arts Council NI Minority Ethnic Artist Support for the Individual Artist Award, which enabled me to have certain poems from Helen Waddell’s Lyrics from the Chinese translated into written and spoken Cantonese. Dr FitzGerald played one of these audio translations at the launch event.
