In April, I participated in the #ReadIrishWomenChallenge, responding every day to a prompt supplied by Irish bookseller Karina Clifford, who discusses her project here. It was mad fun, and I discovered lots of new books as a result, particularly in some categories I often overlook, such as YA fiction. The following is my list for the challenge. I’ve also included a more scholarly thread outlining some of the reasons why I think the challenge is important from a cultural perspective. Click on the tweets for the full threads! And for a full list of all the tweets I dashed off with the hashtag, click here.
