NIGHTHAWKS READING PICS
Nighthawks organiser Colm Keegan avec moi, in the lovely venue, The Cobalt Café
Highly entertaining novelist, Conor Bowman, reading from The Last Estate/The Redemption of George Baxter Henry. It's a flipover novel (2-in-one) and he gave a free copy to everyone in the audience, which was rather fab.
Irreverent and sexy stand-up David Hurley, doing his thing. As I said to him afterwards, if a pregnant feminist can laugh at his comedy, anyone can...
Mé féin, reading from Tattoo:Tatú.
Nighthawks is a club not to be missed. I had to go home early (pregnancy insomnia taking its toll) but I will go back there in the future to enjoy eclectic work in a gorgeous, antique-packed Georgian house and a much anticipated gallon or so of wine, I hope.
Thanks to Colm and Stephen for organising a unique and enjoyable monthly gig. It made me wish (yet again) that I was back living in Dublin. I'm sure Colm will have a report on his Uiscebots blog anon. If you want to go next month, book well in advance as it gets sold out pretty quickly. The place was jammed with enthused punters. Highly recommended.
