Everything I write begins in a notebook

To celebrate the publication of Claire-Louise Bennett’s first collection of stories, Pond (The Stinging Fly Press), we’re sharing her reading from the essay ‘I Am Love,’ (gorse no. 2) filmed at our launch last year.

Pond is launched in Galway on Saturday April 25th at 4pm in the Meyrick Hotel as part of the CĂșirt International Festival of Literature (details), with an introduction by artist Alice Maher. We hope to see you there. A Dublin launch will take place on Thursday April 30th in Hodges Figgis at 6pm.
