Monsoon Diaries - by Joe Woods

Workshops • Tickets: $0.00

Book Launch by Joe Woods: In Monsoon Diaries, the poems attempt to make sense of the world, from a
mid-life flight from home en famille to new perspectives on both the past and the future. This work betrays a growing awareness of mortality and the many losses that come with age.

JOSEPH WOODS has authored four poetry collections. His first, Sailing to Hokkaido (2001) won the Patrick Kavanagh Award and, Ocean Letters translated into Hungarian was awarded the Irodalmi Jelen Prize in 2013. A past recipient of the Katherine and Patrick Kavanagh Fellowship, he was for many
years Director of Poetry Ireland. Widely travelled, he moved to Myanmar in the years leading up to the
democratic elections and now lives in Harare, Zimbabwe with his family.

I LOVED his reading last year, so much that I bought the book - beautiful poems in a lovely Irish accent!
