Look North: The Life and Times of Belfast writer Mary Beckett


One of the weekend’s Look North! The North Belfast Festival events assembled a panel of authors to discuss the overlooked Belfast writer Mary Beckett.

Lucy Caldwell was joined by Jan Carson and Riley Johnson to discuss the work and impact of one of Ireland’s finest writers, an award-winning author who captured the voice of ordinary women at the time. And there’s a surprise appearance by a member of Beckett’s family.

The Life & Times of Belfast writer Mary Beckett was recorded and edited by Alan Melban in Ulster University on Saturday 25 February 2023. Visit his website.
