Keeping Bees has been launched!
On March 29th, surrounded by all sorts of beautiful art (in an absolutely funky space - an optician's shop on Kildare Street), I launched Keeping Bees. Published by Doire Press, the collection was introduced by Patrick Chapman - he called it many things; among them, muscular (and I liked that very much). It was for me, one of the nights of my life. There was wine, and there were books - and people came and took their fill of both. I had friends travel from Canada and Switzerland - and with the music of the lovely Ria Czerniak (she's responsible for my cover), we had a very nice time indeed. All of the photos of the night are care of Aidan Murphy. All of the smiles - the wine. Launching books is a good buzz.
To buy a copy of Keeping Bees, head on over to Doire Press.
Keeping Bees...a book full of poems about bodies, where bodies sound like beehives.

Hi Eoin - I'm super chuffed that my poems compelled you to buy a copy after listening to them on the radio. I really hope you enjoy Keeping Bees, and thank you again for your lovely comment. Best, Dimitra
