Nuala Fagan Not All Birdsong launch, Photographs

Nuala Fagan's Not All Birdsong launched at The Blind Pig, Sowerby Bridge, on November the 18th 2015. I was honoured to introduce the event, where along with three carefully crafted readings from Nuala herself, we were joined by a trio of multiple award-wining poets - Gaia Holmes, Victoria Gatehouse, and John Foggin.  With thanks to Andy Smith for these photographs.
