Poetry Reading worth going to

Poet Paula Meehan will read in Blanchardstown Library on Thursday 29th January at 7.00pm. All welcome, to book telephone 8905563.

Born in Dublin in 1955 Paula Meehan has published five collections of poetry, her latest, Painting Rain, is due in early 2009. She has also written for the stage and radio. Information here and here.

I've heard she's a terrific reader. I'm aiming to be there.

This is part of a monthly series of poetry reading in the library. Among those reading later in the year is Michael Longley who celebrates his 70th birthday this year.

I did an article on Paula for The Community Voice paper up here in Dublin 15.
I've been to most of the readings in the Poets Alive series in the Library but I'm not sure I'll be able to make the one on Thursday night, which is a shame.
Caught her at Strokestown a couple of years ago and yes, she was a great reader.
