We are delighted to bring together Enda Wyley, Maureen Boyle and Jane Clarke for a reading of their recently-published new collections.
Jane Clarke will read from her latest collection When the Tree Falls. Described as ‘Clear, direct, lovely’ by Anne Enright, once you’ve heard her read, you will understand why she goes on to describe Jane Clarke’s voice as one that ‘slips into the Irish tradition with such ease, it is as though she had always been at the heart of it’.
Enda Wyley will read from The Painter on His Bike. Her writing has been described by George Szirtes as ‘intimate and celebratory ... celebrating love and poetry itself with tenderness and grace.’
Maureen Boyle’s The Work of a Winter contains poems written
over sixteen years, giving a voice to women and men whose voices we haven’t often been able to hear, reflecting the idea that poetry can give intimate imaginative access to people’s lives.
Hosting all three will be Claire Cunningham, producer of the very popular Poetry Programme on RTÉ Radio 1.
