Peg Hanafin will launch her fourth book this evening.
'I Wish I Had Known' is a beautiful hard back publication with 136 different themes and chapters.
Thurles lady Peg Hanafin will launch her fourth book in as many years in LIT Tipperary this evening (Friday) next at 7:00pm.
“I Wish I Had Known” is Pegs latest work and as she claims herself -“I think it is the best of the four”.
That's quite a claim really, because the previous three titles ( “Getting More Out of Life”, “Thoughts for Your Journey” and “Never Give Up”) have made an enormous impact and have been very widely read.
Among those who will be in attendance on the evening of the launch will be Cathy Jones, Head of Department of Applied Social Sciences at LIT; Dr Michael Ryan, also of LIT and a number of students who have been using Peg’s previous book “Never Give Up” as an essential reading text on their Social Science programme; Peg's son Councillor Seamus Hanafin, Chairman of the Templemore Thurles Municipal District Council; and Rev Fr Jim Purcell, PP, Thurles, a great friend of Peg who will bless the publication.
There will be refreshments available in the college as well as plenty of entertainment, song and dance in what will be another evening to remember. It's hard to believe that it is just over 12 months since Pegs last book launch - how fortunate that so many can benefit from the wisdom of her experience, having commanded it to print.
Incredibly, there are 136 chapters in this book and each chapter is adorned with quotations appropriate to the theme of the chapter. So whether you wish to read about 'Love of the Outdoors' , 'Going on Holiday', 'Do you Sulk' , 'Toxic People', 'Broken Heart' or many more subjects you can do so.
Each chapter stands alone and the great thing about this book is that it can be taken up and put down with real ease. Read a chapter or two today - appropriate perhaps to your mood at the time - put it down, and read some more tomorrow, or the next day or next week. The themes don't date; the content will not go stale; and the effect and power of the words that Peg has brought together in so coherent, and yet so simple a manner, can be lasting.
Peg Hanafin has received many many compliments from readers over the last number of years for her writing, her wisdom and her desire to share her experiences. She is very active on social media also and is constantly communicating with people at various different levels, offering advice, encouragement and friendship - by reaching out, she in turn, has received much.
“I Wish I had Known” continues on the same road, but enhances the journey of enlightenment considerably for the reader. It is sure to be a success - success being measured in the help it can bring to the reader and all those who will happen upon it.
So, mark the time in your diary and be sure to come to LIT Tipperary this evening next at 7:00pm for some music, song, dance, chat, of of course the book launch as well.
Peg would love to see you.
