Tess Gallagher Launch Events


American poet and prose writer Tess Gallagher’s latest collection Is, Is Not is her first since her retrospective Midnight Lantern (2012). These new poems are about beauty, death, time and contradiction, celebrating the two places where she has lived for the past four decades: the north-west of America and the north-west of Ireland. The book ends with an essay by Tess Gallagher about her writing life on these two west coasts. 

Is, Is Not was published by Bloodaxe on 28 March 2019 and was launched at Cúirt International Festival of Literature.  Tess also read at the opening night of the 15th Cork World Book Festival on 23 April 2019.
