Published on:04 Mar 2021

Edna O’Brien is to receive France’s highest cultural distinction, and be named commander of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres this week. The honour dates back to 1957, and is intended to reward people who have “distinguished themselves by their creations in the artistic or literary field”. The title has previously gone to writers including TS Eliot, Jorge Luis Borges, Seamus Heaney and Ray Bradbury. The ceremony will take place this coming Sunday on the eve of International Women's day and Cavan Library Service extends their congratulations to Edna O'Brien on this distinguished achievement. You can read books from O'Brien's extensive and celebrated collection - ebooks and eAudiobooks available on BorrowBox now.
