A new graphic novel produced by the Nerve Centre explores the life of Irish poets Alice Milligan and Francis Ledwidge.

The graphic novel will be launched by Catherine Morris, author of Alice Milligan and the Celtic Revival, and Dave Duggan, author of Still, the Blackbird Sings; a play about Francis Ledwidge's time in Derry.

Following the launch, Catherine Morris will give a lecture highlighting the creative, cultural and educational work of Alice Milligan in Belfast, Derry and Dublin in the years leading up to the Easter Rising.

In 1914 Thomas McDonagh wrote an article in praise of the woman whom he considered the most significant poet of his generation Alice Milligan, Ulster Protestant, Gaelic Leaguer, Fenian, Friend of all Ireland. Alice Milligan is the most Irish of all living poets and therefore the best.

In partnership with Creative Centenaries and Derry City and Strabane District Council.
