Katie Donovan Readings

Katie Donovan Readings

‘The exact capturing of powerful and often contradictory emotions, thoughts and responses in language this vivid is extraordinarily affecting: a chronicle of almost impossible times, ‘both a searing tragedy and a chainlink of domestic chores’.’ – Frank Startup, The School Librarian

 

Irish poet Katie Donovan, winner of the 2017 Lawrence O’Shaughnessy Award for Poetry, is giving a number of readings this year.  Her fifth poetry collection Off Duty was shortlisted for the Irish Times-Poetry Now Award 2017. This powerful new collection combines Katie Donovan’s unflinching insight into our human foibles with her exceptional descriptive gifts. The years of her late husband’s throat cancer are charted in poems by turns tender, harsh and darkly humorous.
