I’m delighted to be reading this Friday lunchtime at Smock Alley Theatre as part of the Dublin Book Festival 2017. If I might quote from the programme:
“The event brings together Amanda Bell, author of First the Feathers (Doire Press), her first full-length poetry collection. She will be joined by award-winning Dublin poet and author of debut poetry collection After The Fall (Salmon Poetry) Brian Kirk and northern Irish poet and musician Emma McKervey, the voice behind The Rag Tree Speaks (Doire Press). They will be joined by Lisa Frank, the co-director of Doire Press and editor of Galway Stories, which features many of Ireland’s best fiction writers.”
My collection is due to be launched on Thursday 9th November at 6.30pm at the Irish Writers Centre on Parnell Square. I’ll post further details in the next day or so. Exciting times!
