Ennis Book Club Festival was successful in securing a Commissions Award from the Arts Council this year, to work with Jessie Lendennie, Editor and Publisher of Salmon poetry, to produce a ‘Memory Book’, marking 40 years of the much-loved poetry publisher, based in Co. Clare.
This exciting project merges the poet Jessie Lendennie’s narrative poem alongside a visual journey through 40 years at the helm of Salmon Poetry. Book designer, Siobhan Hutson, will create the visuals that accompany Jessie’s words. The book will showcase the broad range of Salmon Poetry’s work, its huge creative output, and its major influence on the world of Irish and international poetry.
On September 11th, come get your signed copy from Jessie! Special edition dust jackets for Ennis Book Club Festival will be on a limited number of copies for sale on the day.
