In June 2014 Jan Carson published her debut novel, Malcolm Orange Disappears with Liberties Press Dublin. The novel is set in a retirement village in Portland, Oregon and focuses on the lives of the residents who make up the Peoples' Committee for Remembering Songs; a fictional club of senior citizens who meet every week to remember and sing all their favourite songs.
Inspired by the members of the Peoples' Committee local singer songwriter, Hannah McPhillimy composed a set of beautiful songs which attempt to explore the highs and lows of the ageing process. They called this project Disappear Here.
All proceeds from this album will go the the wonderful Alzheimer's Society who help people with the illness and their carers to manage the disease with dignity and compassion.
