This collection is by four Waterford-based women, Mary McCarthy, Siobhán Mullins, Marie O’Meara and Sherry Young and the publication was assisted by a grant from the Waterford City and County Council Arts Office.
The collection draws upon the experiences of the authors in Ireland, Africa, India and New England. The authors’ status as Irish citizens anchors the literary conversation. Their lives as women, poets and international workers brought them together. The poems reflect the diversity and rich influences of the places and people about which they write.
At the launch, Waterford poet Lani O’Hanlon will moderate a short discussion amongst the poets. There will be time for refreshments and conversation.
Copies of the books will be on sale in Dungarvan at David Walsh’s on Main Street and The Country Store on Mitchell Street and in Waterford City at The Book Centre on Barronstrand Street.
For more information please contact Dungarvan Library on 058 21141.
