Launch: Sean O'Carroll's Lucid Nature: Poems from a year in Wild Dog Valley

Buck Mulligan's Bookshop and Whiskey Bar

Get along to the official launch of Lucid Nature: Poems from a year in Wild Dog Valley

In 2016 Sean O’Carroll left the city with his family to live on the land for one year – unplugged and unschooled. The poems of Lucid Nature were born out of the experience of living close to nature, and far from the buzz of the city.

Sean will be in conversation with Claire Dunn, author of “My Year Without Matches”, talking about all things wild and poetic, telling stories and reading poems from the book.

“The poetry of Lucid Nature is unaffected, raw, provocative, acutely sensitive, and written with an honesty that is both painful and exhilarating. Sean O’Carroll’s work will sit comfortably on my bookshelf next to David Whyte, Mary Oliver and John O’Donohue, poetry I turn to for comfort, and the inspiration to give myself to life fully, without apology or excuse.” – Claire Dunn, author of My Year Without Matches

Come along, have a fine Irish whiskey in good company and hear stories and poems from the book! Buck Mulligan’s is a cosy Irish Whiskey bar and bookshop on High St in Northcote and is open to the general public. Books will be available for purchase and signing at this event, and if you pre-ordered books you will also be able to collect your pre-ordered books on the night.

All welcome…Free entry…See you there!
