Dedalus Press: Meet the Authors event, Balbriggan, Sept 27, 2007

In an effort to promote Irish writing and publishing to readers and writers all over Ireland, CLÉ – Irish Book Publishers’ Association, with the support of The Arts Council Touring Experiment and the Library network are delighted to continue the nationwide Publisher/Author tour with an evening in Balbriggan Library.

This event will feature Dedalus Press Publisher Pat Boran, and writers Michael Augustin and Enda Coyle-Greene, speaking at Balbriggan Library on Thursday, 27 September 2007 at 8pm.

Pat Boran will speak on various aspects of the publishing process - editing, production, marketing, sales, rights, etc. - and will be happy to answer any questions audience members may have about the business in general.

Michael Augustin and Enda Coyle-Greene will then speak on their careers as writers and their experiences of the publishing world. Both writers will then give a short reading from their work -- Michael Augustin from the recently-published selected writings, Mickle Makes Muckle, and Enda Coyle-Greene from her forthcoming debut collection of poems, Snow Negatives.

Both publisher and authors will take questions from the floor throughout the event which might be of particular interest to beginning writers and writing groups as well as to general readers.
