Wake: Up to Poetry
The Wake Forest Series of Irish Poetry, Volume III, Launches in Paris
The Paris launch earlier this month included readings by the anthology’s featured poets, an appearance by Conor O’Callaghan, Volume III editor and author of the forthcoming book The Sun King, as well as a lecture on the state and future of Irish poetry by Wake Forest Press director Professor Jefferson Holdridge. We at the press remain very excited about this book and the wealth of talent it contains. Here’s a photo from the post-launch supper outing, with Conor O’Callaghan, Professor Holdridge and his wife Wanda Balzano, and anthology poets Colette Bryce, Gerard Fanning, John McAuliffe, Maurice Riordan, and Justin Quinn.
