Duration 60 Mins

Join Elaine Feeney in conversation with Susannah Dickey to celebrate the launch of her new collection of poetry All Good Things You Deserve.

How do we love, trust and create in the aftermath of trauma? How do we name and speak that love? In this powerful new collection from acclaimed poet and novelist Elaine Feeney, images and memory circle and recur, and the journey from pain towards a place of greater safety is far from linear.  All the Good Things You Deserve juxtaposes violence, hurt and the tyranny of shame with love, beauty and the transformative possibilities of art. It is fierce, personal and powerful.


Drinks very kindly supplied by Galway distillers Micil Distillery
