PICS FROM ARLEN HOUSE/TOWER PRESS LAUNCH

Some pics from last night's Arlen House and Tower Press launch in Dublin. Thanks to all the lovely folk who came along, including my 86 year old aunt, Eta, who is the most positive person in Ireland. She smiled through Maighréad Medhbh's fantastic and provacative orgasm poem, delivered as only Maighréad can. Great stuff! I was raging I had to dash back to Galway afterwards for this morning's school run.

It's been a really odd Friday the 13th: lots of work things suddenly piling up (agent convo, pre-pub stuff for Scotland visits, tears over one aspect of one book, hope over an aspect of another). Life things tripping me up - the fridge I ordered? Turned out the order didn't go through so while I've been waiting.. My head is addled. Anyhow, pics:

Alan Hayes, publisher Arlen House, with books, lovely books, and Jane from Poetry Ireland
Alan McMonagle reading from Psychotic Episodes
Not dancing but yapping
Patrick Chapman reading from The Negative Cutter
Maighréad Medhbh, reciting
Geraldine Mitchell reading from Of Birds and Bones

Sounds like a night of delights :) I'm blaming the impending full moon for the general crazy at the minute (or maybe its just me thats crazy... hmmm...)
