Lynne Knight and 7 Towers (Sun.3rd)

Filed under: Readings — tvivf @ 2:25

Our American guest today at the Seven Towers reading in Cassidys in Westmoreland Street was Lynne Knight (www.lynneknight.com) who read some stunning poems. One concerned a dream about Barak Obama which had very arresting imagery and seemed to work in the logical/illogical way that dreams do. Another, about the Irish famine, was very moving and grew out of her discovery of her Irish roots, of which she is very proud.  I liked her quiet, insistent style of delivery. Other readers were Oran Ryan with a piece from one of his novels, Ross Hathaway with a new poem about killing your husband (?!) and myself with my ‘Dublin’ poem. Steve Conway (he of Pirate fame) did MC. A good time was had by all.
