Futa Fata Publishes Global Bestseller ‘Heartstopper’ As Gaeilge

It was a full house in An Siopa Leabhar, 6 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 on Thursday evening for the launch of Heartstopper – the queer love story everyone is falling for! Written by Alice Oseman, the series is a global hit on Netflix and the books are available in more than 36 languages. And now, thanks to the superb translation by Eoin Mc Evoy, the first book in the best-selling series of graphic novels is also available as Gaeilge. Social media star James Kavanagh, who launched the book, translator Eoin and An Siopa Leabhar manager Gráinne Ní Mhuilneoir were all in agreement that Heartstopper being available as Gaeilge is a very important milestone in Irish-language publishing with its representation of the queer, Irish-speaking community. Futa Fata is very proud to take their first step into the young adult genre with this particular series and is hugely thankful to the Arts Council of Ireland for their support with the project.

Heartstopper as Gaeilge is available in An Siopa Leabhar and all good bookshops nationwide now.
