Event description

Description

This event offers ‘Truth or Dare’, glimpses into a child's world from four well known writers (from both town and rural backgrounds).

Doreen Duffy, Mary Guckian, Geraldine Mills, Mary O’Donnell and Eileen Casey read poems themed around childhood from The Lea-Green Down (Fiery Arrow Press). The poems were initially sparked by Patrick Kavanagh, a poet whose rural upbringing provided a structure for his work. The readings, introduced by Eileen Casey, offer opportunity for audience participation especially with regard to discussion on how childhood experience inspires and informs poetry.
