Our Shared Japan launch, 11 October 2007

Our Shared Japan, the major new anthology of contemporary Irish poetry, published to mark and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Ireland and Japan, will be launched on Thursday 11 October, 2007 at 6.30 by the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism, Mr Seamus Brennan, TD, at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, 123 St Stephen's Green West, Dublin 2.

Edited by Irene De Angelis and Joseph Woods, and with an Afterword by Seamus Heaney, Our Shared Japan features work by more than 80 poets who have responded, in a variety of ways, to the many cultural and other connections between the two countries.

Our Shared Japan is published by the Dedalus Press, with the support of the Cultural Division of the Department of Foreign Affairs, and of Poetry Ireland.
