You wouldn't get it in the Gresham...
'Ní Bhfaighfeá A Leithéad Sa Ghresham É'
I’ve never been more in touch with the season as Spring begins to open itself this year. Light has started to linger in the evening sky and, until Sunday last, we dawdled again with friends over coffee. It was sublime. Our own Covid saga put a stop to our gallop on Monday and we have been confined to the house since.
We released a second poetry-film of Martha Woodcock’s work, from her new collection We Say We Will. I particularly like the poem in Irish entitled, Ní Bhfaighfeá A Leithéad Sa Ghresham É. (See link below)
The Gresham was an icon of luxury to those of us who lived in the country. My brother worked there during his student days and it was with incredulous glee that we enjoyed high class drinks after work, like children at the adults’ table.
Last week, we attended Fever Pitch with booksellers, organised by Publishing Ireland. It was a Zoom meeting that gave us an opportunity to present our two new titles to booksellers. We promoted Martha’s poetry collection, due out on 11th February, and also John Masterson’s memoir The Column I Never Wrote, due out on the 11th March.
Martha Woodcock’s We Say We Will, will be available from The Kilkenny Book Centre from the 8th of February and it will be available from our website from the same date.
Martha will chat to Edward Hayden, on The Saturday Show, 5th February on KCLR from 10am - 12pm.
Exciting times for The Harvest Press.

On another note, we are gathering for a silent party on Wednesday February 2nd from 11am - 12pm in The Goodly Barrow in Goresbridge, county Kilkenny. Bring a book, have a cup of tea and read a while. If you feel like a chat afterwards, dawdle with us a little longer. (See flyer below)
