Even though it's only 02 November, and the rest of the book world is on the brink of end-of-year / Yuletide madness, we're trying to see sense for a change. So instead of barking ourselves hoarse in the run-up to Christmas (hoping for the attention that so seldom comes), instead we're launching our last three books of the year tomorrow night (and, yea, the weather gods are even on our side). Apart from anything else, this will give us a bit of time to prepare for our busy programme of anthologies, new collections, and a couple of really special new developments in the New Year.

Tomorrow, it's three fine new books -- Coloured Handprints: 20 German-Language Poets edited by Anatoly Kudryavitsky; Fur, the new collection from Grace Wells; and Opening Time by Mick Delap (in fact published by Arlen House, but on the bill tomorrow night in a spirit of pre-seasonal goodwill to our fellow publishers and poets.

So that's Club na Múinteoirí / The Teachers’ Club, 36 Parnell Square West, Dublin 1, tomorrow, Tuesday 03 November at 7 pm.

And what else? Oh yes, Poetry Matters: Spread the Word.

"October yielded to November and still they came
buzzing their insistent daily drone, demanding
their abundance was a portent I should read ..."
from 'Each Day the Queen Wasp Came' by Grace Wells
