The book signing in Kennys today was lovely: well attended, friendly and, hopefully for Kennys, lucrative. We had mince pies and mulled wine, coffee and Christmas cake, and lots of chats.

Kennys is one of Ireland's best bookshops - it is run by people who genuinely and wholeheartedly LOVE books. And art. They have an art gallery on site.
Author Fred Johnston
Kennys are famous for hanging photos of visiting authors - the fame quotient is v high - and we had a group pic taken today as well as individual shots for their website and archive. Maybe even their wall.

It was nice to meet up with the great and good of Galway writing: Geraldine Mills, Gerry Hanberry, Órfhlaith Foyle, Fred Johnston, Dara Foyle, Colm Brady, Conor Montague, Alan Caden, Lucy McCrann, Sandra Bunting, Aideen Henry, Colette Nic Aodha, Tom Mathews, John Quinn, James Martyn Joyce, Aoife Casby, Michael O'Loughlin... I know I have forgotten people, so I do apologise for that.
The writers! Kennys - 19th December 2009
Anyhoo, books were bought, literature was celebrated and a good time was had.
