Higgins Celebration in Galway TOMORROW: Wednesday 5th September

Celebrating 'The Boy With No Face'

Kevin Higgins’s debut poetry collection ‘The Boy With No Face’ was Salmon Poetry’s bestselling book of 2005 and has recently been reprinted. To celebrate the rare enough event of a debut poetry collection going to a second printing an invited group of readers will read their favourite poems from ‘The Boy With No Face’ in Galway City Library on Wednesday, September 5th at 6.30pm. The MC for the evening will be John Walsh, organiser of North Beach Poetry Nights.

The readers will be Jessie Lendennie, Councillor Niall O’Brolcháin, Trish Casey, Susan Millar DuMars, Kernan Andrews, Gary King, James C. Harrold, Celeste Augé, Susan Lindsay & Niall McCarthy.

Everyone is welcome!

‘The Boy With No Face’ was shortlisted for the 2006 Strong Award for Best First Collection by an Irish Poet. http://www.salmonpoetry.com/theboy.html Kevin’s second collection, ‘Time Gentlemen, Please’ will be published next year by Salmon Poetry. Kevin’s work will also feature in the anthology Salmon: A Journey in Poetry, an anthology of Salmon Poets with a narrative by Salmon editor Jessie Lendennie, to celebrate Salmon's 25th Anniversary of literary publishing (Autumn 2007)
