You are cordially invited to the North American launch of my first collection, Waiting for Saint Brendan and Other Poems
Writer Scott Morris will emcee the event (quite possibly dressed as Elvis, but otherwise in the guise of a 3rd generation Floridian gentleman). The event will also include a reading of some of the poems from Brendan as interpreted by actor / poet Thomas Dooley who is the artistic director of emotive fruition (a theatre collective where actors collaborate with poets to bring poetry to life on stage: see www.emotivefruition.org for further details). The book will be available for 15$ USD (although Euros are acceptable). The event is free. Bring a friend.
