Mairtin Crawford selected poetry book launch

On the literary theme of Bloomsday, there’s the launch tonight of the Selected poems of Mairtin Crawford, who died in January 2004 at the age of 36. He was editor of The Big Spoon literary mag, and did the production and arts stuff at Fortnight for seven years. He was at the time of his death, director of the Between the Lines literary festival. The launch of the Selected Poems (Lagan Press), edited by Naomi Foyle, is at 7:00 at the Crescent Arts Centre.

    Did anyone go to this?

    My partner was a good friend of Mairtin’s and is I would be very interested to know how it went – what a shame I only logged on to slugger now (in the public library) as I have been ‘home’ all week and could have attended it.
