Ennis Bookclub Festival
I was at the Ennis Book Festival at the week-end, doing a reading and meeting other writers and readers. All very jolly. The organisers were so friendly – genuine book lovers. I brought ten copies of my latest book, thinking I’d be schlepping them home, as per. It bloody sold out plus one! I brought ten, sold eleven ( I have to send it on). That was good going in the world of poetry. Wish I’d brought more…
Anyway, Ennis is a lovely town - we went on the walking tour with Seán Spellissy - and the festival is action-packed. Watch out for it next March.
Back to mundanity now (i.e. editing) until the Dublin Book Festival next week-end, where I am also reading. It’s a busy March, thank my literary stars.
