The first ‘Over The Edge: Open Reading’ after the summer break takes place in Galway City Library on Thursday, August 30th, 6.30-8.00pm. The Featured Readers are Leeanne Quinn, Pat Finnegan & Adedotun Adekeye. The reading is sponsored by Poetry Ireland and the MC is Kevin Higgins.
Leeanne Quinn's debut collection of poems, Before You, was published by Dedalus Press in 2011 and was widely praised on its publication, including in The Stinging Fly by Lucy Collins: "These are intimate and finely-tuned lyrics, observant of subjective states
and patterns of shared experience … Quinn’s sensitivity to the relationship between form and meaning is highlighted in Before You not so much by her choice of fixed forms but by her loosening of poetic structure".
