I had a terrific time in Dublin doing readings with three other Ward Wood writers, Sue Guiney, Shauna Gilligan and Noel Duffy, at the Irish Writers´ Centre on Friday 16 September and then at The Twisted Pepper cafe the next afternoon. We had lovely audiences at both events and it was a real pleasure to chat with them after the readings and hear their views on our work and other literary matters. The following photos are from the event at The Irish Writers´ Centre and you can see just how perfect it is a venue for a reading.
Shauna reading from her forthcoming novel, Happiness comes from Nowhere.
Sue reading from A Clash of Innocents and Her Life Collected.
Noel reading from In the Library of Lost Objects and Our Friends Electric.
I read from Midas Touch and The Finn´s Tale.
Some members of the audience at the book table, browsing the books for sale and enjoying a glass of wine or orange juice and a chat. Thanks to Shauna and Noel for arranging and hosting the event and for taking the photographs.
My next reading date will be in London on 22 October when I will be reading at The Poetry Cafe in Betterton Street, Covent Garden with Peter Phillips and David Cooke.
