Red: A History of the Redhead is the first book to explore the history of red hair and redheaded-ness throughout the world.
However, Red is more than a book for redheads, it is the exploration of evolution and gene mutation, as well as a compelling social and cultural study of how prejudice and misconceptions of “other” evolve across centuries and continents and are handed down through generations and from one culture to another. Author Jacky Colliss Harvey will present two talks on her research.
Saturday & Sunday at 2pm at Crosshaven Community Centre Jacky will present a talk entitled “The Irish Redhead” which will look at the most influential Irish redheads in our history and explore red hair throughout the ages, including science, religion, politics, feminism and sexuality, literature, and art.
Not to be missed!
