Bealtaine Events - Boyne Writers Group

Boyne Writers Group are holding two events as part of the Bealtaine Festival 2010 - celebrating creativity in old age. Both are public events to be held in the Village Hall, Knightsbridge Village, Trim. This is building on the weekly poetry reading for residents organised by the Group for the last three months which has been very well supported and enjoyed.

On Thursday 19 May we will present the Top Twenty - the 20 favourite read aloud poems based on reaction to our weekly readings so far.

On the following Thursday, Boyne Writers Group will present a reading entitles Memories in Prose and Poetry. This will consist of prose and poetry written and read by the group members. We hope to encourage audience participation and expect that members of the audience will contribute their memories.

In conjunction with these two events we are holding an exhibition of old school books to remind people what school books, especially English books were like in the past. We have collected a small number of such book and have put out an appeal for more which was published this week in the Meath Chronicle. with the photo above. In the picture Mark Hennessy of Knightsbridge and myself examine an old school poetry book.
