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.

Great photos and another brilliant Nighthawks. I enjoyed your reading very much. Thank you!

Looks like a great evening - and you look fabulous!

Aw, thanks Meadow. Much appreciated.

Thanks, Tania. It was great and I'm determined to go back to it as a punter rather than reader.
The audience were very enthusiastic - lots of regulars, I'd say.
I'm so jealous that there aren't gigs like this happening on MY doorstep...

Thanks for the plug Nuala. It was a great night. A lot of women told me they enjoyed your poetry. I got a great laugh from the writers room piece (i was out for some of your slot - sorry) Pity you left so early. Pony Club were brilliant as was the insane Enda Muldoon. Hope to see you again. Dermot Bolger will be reading in April and I'll be doing some stuff in May.

No problem, Colm. We both thought it was a great night. I was sorry to go early but needs must.
I was off to the PN09 fest the next morning and needed some sleep.

Best of luck with it all. It will be a few months before I'll be able to attend as happy, wine-swilling audience member. Can't wait!

You look very well, N. Sounds like it was a good evening all round. Deffo one to keep an eye out for in future - next time you're going as a fully paid up wine-swiller, let me know ;)

Hi B, thanks :). Oooh, we could go together. That'd be great. Or I could go to hear you read! Offer yourself to them, me dear.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Nik - it was great and will be again. If ever you are in Dublin town...!

Nuala,
Just wanted to say that you look fabulous. Very chic. Love the blazer.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Thanks a million, Johanna. The blazer was my Mother's Day prezzie, (got it in Zara). I'm living in it at the mo!
