|PJ Nolan reads from The Poetry Bus|
Dublin was buzzing on Culture Night, the streets alive with tourists and culture vultures, going from venue to venue, soaking it all up. We went to The Winding Stair Bookshop, the sweetest and funkiest book shop in the city.
We arrived in time to hear readings from the new edition of The Poetry Bus from Kate Dempsey, PJ Nolan and Kit Fryatt. Each of them read with great passion and energy.
Kit is a particularly exuberant reader: she sang, she danced, she expounded and she managed to be both clever and funny. A great perfomer - I had heard her for the first time two weeks ago at Phizzfest and it was a treat to see her again.

The Winding Stair is one of those shops where you want to buy everything you see - they have a gorgeous selection of books and cards.
We had to leave after my reading and before the band The Young Folk came on unfortunately - Juno was not going to last much longer - but, as always, it was a treat to read in The Winding Stair and especially for Culture Night.
