The launch of A Baker’s Dozen on Friday November 9th was a great success. It kicked off at 7.30pm. Over 100 people attended at the Library, Main St, Charleville. Special Guests, author Vincent McDonnell and Michael Biggane spoke about what a wonderful thing it is to publish a book. A launch being a celebration of the event. Vincent read a piece from the collection and described my writing as a fine example of how to share a story. His review of the collection can be seen in an earlier post on this blog. He also made a presentation to me of a beautiful Sheafer pen in memory of the night. I was thrilled. Emcee for the evening was Ken Wheeler who did a wonderful job of keeping the proceedings ticking over. There was a wine and soft drinks reception with snacks. Amid music and laughter, the night rolled on and really ended on a high note. Thank you to all who travelled from far and near to mark this extraordinary night and so made it an exceptional night for me. Photos of the event will be put up on a separate page.
