Launch of 2 new Peppercanisters by Thomas Kinsella
The Dedalus Press, in assocation with Peppercanister books, is delighted to announce the publication of two eagerly-awaited new volumes in the Peppercanister series by Thomas Kinsella, Man of War and Belief and Unbelief. The two Peppercanisters will be launched at a special closing event of the 2007 Dublin Writers Festival, at which an impressive line-up of poets, writers and critics (including Richard Ryan, Colm Toibín, Michael Schmidt, Eavan Boland and Dennis O'Driscoll) will read from their favourite works by Kinsella, and at which poet John F. Deane, formerly publisher of the Dedalus Press, will launch the new publications.
This event, which is organised by Poetry Ireland, is the culmination of a series of recent events which also saw Kinsella conferred with the Freedom of Dublin City in a ceremony performed by Lord Mayor Vincent Jackson, and at which painter Louis le Brocquy was also similarly conferrred.
Further details of the event may be found here.
To order copies of Man of War and Belief and Unbelief (limited editions of 500 copies each), please visit the Dedalus Press website here. (Please note: publications will not be mailed out until after June 17th).
In a Poetry Programme special, Pat Boran talks to Thomas Kinsella about his life and work on two programmes, broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 on Saturday June 16 and Saturday June 23, at 7.00 pm.
