Serendipity is the new collection of poetry from Limerick raised poet Imelda Maguire and it takes place Friday 11th December in the Limerick City Library, the Granary at 7.30pm. Imelda’s work has been described by Paula Meehan, Ireland Professor of Poetry, as ‘the restless search for a spiritual home… part of the journey of this poet’s soul towards peace’.
The book is published by Revival Press (an imprint of The Limerick Writers’ Centre) under their Community Publishing initiative and will be launched by local author Helena Close. All are welcome to attend.
