FRANK O'CONNOR FEST ROUND-UP



ME READING AT THE LAUNCH OF NUDE - CITY LIBRARY, CORK


FOC POSTER ON SOUTH MALL - LOOK AT JULIA VAN MIDDLESWORTH!!

Due to my general insane busy-ness, it's going to be impossible for me to give a proper report about the Frank O'Connor Festival. Let it suffice to say that it was fantastic as usual and I had a ball at readings, at my launch, in the pub, at Café Paradiso, in the English Market - oh, everywhere! Here's a few pics anyway.


PAT COTTER LAUNCHING NUDE - JUNO OUT FRONT

Thanks to Pat Cotter for hosting the launch; to my lovely Finbar for the nude etching, and to all the writers I spent time with and chatted to over the course of the few days. It was a pleasure to meet you all. (I'll resist the urge to namedrop shamelessly...)


PETINA GAPPAH AND JUNO

I'm off to Naas tomorrow to launch an exhibition of nude paintings by artist Stephen O'Raw.
Naas Library at 7pm - all welcome!

I think Juno may have stolen the show! Cute cute cute! It all sounds like utter mayhem...I don't know how you manage it all! Well done you. And relax!

Liz - thanks. Yes, she's ever present!

Kar - I just don't have time to write it up. Chasing my tail as per usual. See ya later at Stephen's launch!

Rachel - it's all mad. But I've learnt from experience that having a book out is utter mayhem - interviews, travels, promo etc etc. With a new baby & 2 other kids to see to, it's twice as exhausting.
Now,if I had help I might just get a chance to relax. As it stands - no chance!

Nuala, Juno is so beautiful! Wish I was there to play with her. Can't believe they posted my photo! Wish I was there in person. Next time.
