About Frances Browne
Frances Browne, the Blind Poetess of Ulster, hails from Donegal’s Finn Valley, in the North West of Ireland. Her masterpiece, the children’s storybook “Granny’s Wonderful Chair” was a bestseller all over the world, but she also deserves to be remembered for her unswerving opposition to slavery and all sorts of injustice.
The Annual Frances Browne Literary Festival celebrates the legacy and spirit of Frances Browne. They work to bring not only Frances’s writing and astonishing life story to new generations but to celebrate the works of contemporary and modern writers who continue in her tradition.
