Talk with author & poet David Butler

Saturday 11 February
Blackrock Library

David will talk about his Blackrock Sequence project and present some of the work in progress, followed by a Q&A. David would welcome peoples’ memories of the area over a cup of tea and coffee. This will appeal to local groups and anyone with an interest in the local history and literature.

The Blackrock Sequence is a special commission to produce a sequence of poems examining the history, culture and memory of the coastal area running from Booterstown to Dun Laoghaire, centering on Blackrock.

This project is managed by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Arts Office, with support from dlr Library Service.
