Poetry Reading in Dublin this Saturday

If you're in town, why not stop in at the Original Print Gallery, Temple Bar at 5pm for an hour. They have wine and everything!

17.00 – 18.00, Saturday, 7th June, 2008

Readers: Noel Duffy and Orlagh O’Farrell (Dublin)

Special Guest Reader: Yong Shu Hoong (Singapore)

Yong Shu Hoong has published three books of poetry in English: Isaac (1997), do-while (2002) and Frottage (2005), which won the Singapore Literature Prize in 2006.
Shu Hoong’s poems have been included in the literary journals Asia Literary Review (Hong Kong) and Ars Interpres (Sweden), as well as the anthologies Over There: Poems from Singapore and Australia (Ethos Books, 2007, co-edited by John Kinsella) and Language for a New Century: Contemporary Poetry from the Middle East, Asia, and Beyond (W.W. Norton, 2008). His writings have also appeared in The Straits Times and South China Morning Post.

I think Orlagh was the runner up at Strokestown this year.

Event supported by Poetry Ireland and The Original Print Gallery
