The two featured readers are Frank Murphy and Pat Dunne. Frank is a Meath poet who has published two books of poetry, The Marginal Line (2005) and Excursions (2008). Pat is a Trim-born internationally-selling author with four novels published to date. A Carol for the Dead, the first in a series of thrillers featuring the Meath-based archaeologist Illaun Bowe, has appeared in paperback in English and in addition has been translated into eleven other languages.
The event has been well publicised in local newspapers and by Poetry Ireland and we are hopeful that we will have a reasonable crowd to listen and to perform their own work. All welcome.
