It's a busy week in Cavan literary circles. After last evening's very successful inaugural At The Edge reading in Cavan Library, more poetry in Cavan on Thursday evening.
Where the Wind Sleeps, New and Selected Poems by Noel Monahan will be launched at Cavan Courthouse and Council Chambers on this Thursday 8 May 2014 at 8pm.
The launch will be performed by Gerard Smyth, chairperson of Poetry Ireland, Kavan Donohoe will provide music and there will be wine and refreshments.
The cover of the book features a panting by local artist Pádraig Lynch and the launch will be accompanied by an exhibition of Pádraig's work.
The book, Noel's sixth collection, is being published by Salmon Poetry.
Where the Wind Sleeps: New & Selected Poems features selections from five previous collections, published over twenty-three years, as well as new work and gives us an intriguing insight into Monahan’s observations at the edges of time and place.
The collection will be launched in Dublin on Tuesday 13 May at 6.30pm in The Little Museum of Dublin, St Stephens Green. Mamisa String Trio will provide musical entertainment for the evening.
