1000 Book Challenge – where we’ll be for the rest of the year!


1000 Book Challenge

 

The 1000 Book Challenge

seeks to encourage members of the public and businesses to fund independent publishers though purchase of their publications, with the message that, for every 1000 books sold, 2 -3 further titles can be published.

 

The challenge is for us to sell and you to buy 1000 books, to enable us to publish our next three titles. 

 

To make it easy to buy Seven Towers Books for the 1000 Book Challenge we are having a load of events between now and Christmas, where books can be bought and, if the authors are present, signed and dedicated – and are open to having more if people would like Seven Towers Writers to read at their venue!

 

1000 Book Challenge books can also be bought in Chapters Bookstore, Parnell St Dublin 1, or online at www.seventowers.ie, or www.readireland.ie.

 

More Information is available from www.seventowers.ie, info@seventowers.ie or Sarah at 00353872283351

November News


Lots of news for November – the 1000 Book Challenge, International Radio Day, extra readings coming up to Christmas.  And, all going well, the imminent publication, before Christmas of Census, the Second Seven Towers Anthology and after Christmas of two new collections.

 

 

One Hundred Unpainted Shapes by Alma Brayden  and And Suddenly the Sun

 

To the 1000 Book Challenge first.  This is our challenge to us and to the book buying public, and is a challenge emphasising sponsorship through purchase – a win win situation where people can sponsor the arts by buying a book.  It also puts into perspective the extent of the difference that each individual sale can make – for every 1000 books a not-for profit company like Seven Towers Agency sells, 2 – 3 further books can be published.  And to make it easier to buy one of the 1000 books that will make a difference this Christmas, we are bringing the 1000 Book Challenge to you this Christmas with markets in Cassidy’s Bar, Westmoreland St on the last Sunday in November and the first three in December, and working with Chapters Bookstore in Parnell St, where the Challenge will also be available and where we will be having weekly readings.  And you never know where we might pop up at a venue near you – so keep an eye on the calendar on www.seventowers.ie.  At the end of this mail the prices of Seven Towers Books during this promotion are listed – but you never know what other promotions might also be available on the day!  If you would like to know more information, or take part in the 1000 book Challenge markets please email us at 1000bookchallenge@seventowers.ie.  A nominal €5 fee will apply per table – towards the cost of posters and other administrative costs.  And, while the Challenge markets are going on Cassidy’s Bar is getting into the Christmas spirit with a special offer of a glass of wine and a mince pie for the recession busting sum of €5 (subject to availability) .

And now to radio.  Steve Conway’s best-selling memoir  about Radio Caroline days, Shiprocked, Life on the Waves with Radio Caroline continues to sell and draw admirers.  It has also moved across the pond where it is getting a publicity boost with the launch of The Boat that Rocked (renamed Pirate Radio) in the US on 13th November.  And, as if that wasn’t enough, Steve will be the guest of honour that weekend at the International Radio Day in Amsterdam on Saturday 14th November. 

And on the book front we are now compiling our second anthology of work read at the open mic and some other Seven Towers’ reading events, and hope to have Census 2 reading for Christmas shopping bags.  And then shortly after Christmas, all going well, we hope to launch our first two collections of 2010 – One Hundred Unpainted Shapes  by Alma Brayden and And Suddenly the Sun Again  by Eamonn Lynskey. 

 

And to round off the good news, the end of October saw a number of launches that we feel we have reason to celebrate.  First up was the inaugural Great Irish Book Week and the related Dublin launch of Salmon Poetry’s Poetry: Reading it, Writing it, Publishing it, edited by Jessie Lendennie.  This book is available for sale in Chapters Bookstore and we encourage you all to support both our friends – Salmon Poetry and Chapters Bookstore as well as buying a valuable resource, and learning things for yourself by purchasing this book when buying your Seven Towers 1000 Book Challenge Book this Christmas. 

The second launch is the 30th October launch of the eponymous CD The Prairie Dawgs from the roots band we have mentioned regularly as the kennel of choice of Seven Towers writer Conor Farrell.   This CD, which retails for €10, has been described by Eamon Carr as “a winning proposition” and is home to what is surely going to be the single for the current era – in a song entitled “Ain’t no Money”.  As well as being available from the usual independent outlets, including Road Records and Tower, The Prairie Dawgs will be for sale at the 1000 Book Challenge markets at the end of November and in December. 

And the third launch is the launch of our very own collaboration with the afore mentioned Conor “Dawg” Farrell in the shape of the Tumbleweed Love Recession Sessions  in Cassidy’s Bar, Westmoreland St.  We will report on these in detail in next month’s newsletter, wishing not to fall into the covering the end and so missing the start of the month trap that caught us last month. 

I do hope I am remembering everything here, apologise if I have left anything out, and firmly promise to update to fill any lacunae!

 

 

And – As Always –

 

From the Last Wednesday in April 2009, The Last Wednesday Series Reading and Open Mike will run simultaneously in Cassidy’s Bar, Westmoreland St, Dublin 2 and Rocky Sullivan’s, Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York City on the last Wednesday of every month. We believe this exciting event will help to establish an ongoing sharing and twinning relationship between the vibrant writing scenes in both communities and also provide an established space in Dublin for writers visiting from America and in New York for Irish writers visiting there. We would like to thank Fáilte Ireland for their help and encouragement in this venture.

 

Details are available at www.seventowers.ie

 

Any visiting writers wishing to attend and/or writers wishing to publicise their books at either event can contact Seven Towers at lastwednesday@seventowers.ie in advance of the event and their details will be circulated with event publicity notices.

 

Each venue, Cassidy’s Bar and Rocky Sullivan’s give their space free of charge to this event, so we encourage you to support them.  There is a full bar, including soft dinks and tea/coffee available and each venue also have good food menus.  We encourage all patrons to drink sensibly.

 

Surviving October


Well, we finally managed to catch upon ourselves after the first week in October, though there was some minor confusion caused by October starting on a Thursday, which meant that the 2nd Thursday event was on the third Thursday, because the first Wednesday was the day before the second Thursday (and lunchtime readings are usually on the first and third Wednesday and the evening one on the 2nd Thursday – whew.  More about that in a minute.

 

Firstly, the afore mentioned first Wednesday Chapters and Verse Lunchtime reading saw Bernie O’Reilly sharing the spotlight with Eileen Keane in Chapters Bookstore for an enjoyable lunchtime by everything.  Then there was brief – also aforementioned – confusion and a flurry of phone calls and email as we all struggled to come to grips with the fact the 2nd Thursday reading would be on the third Thursday in the following week – having already been taken by surprise by the sudden start to the month, as described in last month’s newsletter!! Anhoo, the usual second Thursday evening Chapters and Verse Themed Reading  took place on the Third Thursday of the 15th October (we are asking for the international calendar to be rearranged so this does not happen again. It may mean some people losing birthdays, but sacrifices have to be made in the name of art!).  Given the month that was in it, not to mention the date gremlins in the month, the theme for this month of Ghosts and Goblins was particularly apt.  And there were slightly more ghosts than goblins in Chapters Bookstore that evening – from the readers, and also the ghost in the machine in the form of the mechanical cricket chirping that went on at regular intervals throughout or reading and then stopped once we finished!  An objection to the theme, or a voice from elsewhere wanting to take part?  There were some suggestions that it was an alarm needing new batteries, but . . . well . . . you’ll just have to draw your own conclusions.  Anyhow, accompanying the chirping we had Steve Conway firmly not believing in the ghost that came to him in his dreams and then wreaked temporary havoc on the Ross Revenge(Hmm did he protest too much?);  Pauline Fayne also explored the theme of spirits and Halloween and also read a poem that her now 19 year old daughter Rachel  had penned when she was 12; Eamonn Lynskey read about spirit echoes, going and coming back and personal hauntings; Oran Ryan read about hauntings in the old Harcourt Street Hospital as presented Ten Short Novels by Arthur Kruger  and Bob Shakeshaft  and Bernie O Reilly also read on our theme of haunting spirits, with some bonfires and a general Halloween atmosphere.  The reading was rounded off by Ross Hattaway and our cricket ghost – and Ross too kept to the ghost theme, but rounded the evening with particularly scary references to financial and banking crises with his gift.

 

The Third Wednesday on 21st October saw us back on time track with the second Chapters and Verse Lunchtime Reading of the month in Chapters Bookstore.  This time the readers were Eileen Casey, Seamus Cashman and Eamonn Lynskey, for a mixture of old and new poems, poems from Dublin, Offaly and a mixture of personal and political – everything you could wish for in a reading. 

 

Tuesday 27th October saw us back in Chapters Bookstore to celebrate Great Irish Book Week and to help Salmon Poetry celebrate the publication of their book Poetry: Reading it, Writing it, Publishing it a worthy tome on sale in Chapters, and well worth purchasing – to support Salmon and Chapters.

 

Wednesday 28th October saw Seven Towers represented in Cassidy’s Bar in Westmoreland St in Dublin and in Rocky Sullivan’s in Red Hook in Brooklyn with the transatlantic literary event – The Last Wednesday Series Reading and Open Mic.  Both venues had a full night.  In Dublin Ross Hattaway got the evening off to a flying start, in great reading form, reading a few from the book – and some new ones – and committing himself to a new poem a month!!  Watch this space to see if he will keep to that commitment.  Ross’ gift was from David Howard (This one, apparently, and not the other one!).  Ross was followed at the mic by Jim Rooney who read a poem about flesh eating aliens landing at Balbriggan beach who were conquered by the power of poetry – in honour of the recent Poetry Upfront reading on Balbriggan beach, followed by a Pat Ingoldsby poem and ending up with a taste of his foray into the prose world.  Jim handed the mic over to Xenophon making his debut at the open mic with an anecdotal story from his past in Greece,  And he was followed by another first in the form of Helena Mulkerns  – who among many other things runs the Cácá Milís Cabaret event in the Wexford Arts Centre on the last Saturday of each month.  Helena read a heart warming story about literary anarchy from her time in Eritrea, and also her poem Blue Tarpaulin in honour of her brave and lamented Peace Keeper colleagues who were killed in the bombing that morning in Kabul.  After a short break, and some more entertainment from our beloved, devoted and always entertaining, suit-wearing MC, Declan McLoughlin (also in flying form on the evening, though he didn’t attempt to count once!) Dermot McCatrthy  took up the mic and read about postcards, wonder, emigration and killing time. He handed the mic over to Helen Dempsey who read poems inspired by here time spent in railway stations and on trains and all of the life – bird and human that she sees there.  Helen also read a Halloween poem, which led nicely into the performance of the next reader, Eamonn Lynskey who continues with his Halloween theme of haunting and, I guess nightmares, with a poem about a dream of elders past, inability to lay flowers at Auschwitz, the women watching the body being taken down, but at waste ground in the Tolka Valley.  Eamonn also read a poem about his wife’s opinion of a Gigolo in Sicily, which may still fall into the nightmare category, if we are focusing on a personal nightmare (!!) and he ended with a poem about writing.  Eamonn handed the mic over to Eileen Keane  much to the relief and enjoyment of all of us who has waiting patiently since the previous month, read the second and final part of her story Snapshots.  Steve Conway  took the mic after Eileen and introduced us to the type of poem that a radio DJ would write.  We’ll just say –Donuts make his brown eyes blue – you’ll have to ask him!  After Steve, Anne Tanhem made a welcome return visit and read about the Beginnings and Endings in her park and a poem to her youngest daughter (as requested by her youngest daughter!!)  Anne was followed by Raven making an always welcome visit to Last Wednesday and fresh from the previous night’s performance event in the Cobblestone.  Raven also read in memory of those loved and lost.  Raven handed the mic over to Delta O’Hara who took the opportunity to have a test performance of her piece for here gig on Monday 2nd November at the Patriot Inn in Kilmainham, in a performance ranging from cynical and humorous working on an unromantic phone sex line, to romantic serenade, wondering, in song, who had put the rainbow in the sky.  After Delta, we had Dennis Kenny making his debut at the Last Wednesday Series and reading work in memory of the New York Firemen killed on 09/11 and the people killed in the Dublin City bombings of 1974.  Dennis was followed at the mic by another Last Wednesday first timer Cliff Horseman who mingled reality with fairy tales in The Princess and the Pea, read a poem inspired by a late night walk from the city centre to Finglas and also read work that is featured on a video in YouTube – but that is seriously disapproved of by his mother, who really doesn’t like the saucy ones! After Cliff was last Wednesday regular Bob Shakeshaft reworking his poem on seductive cat assassins, and also reading about being up and about in the very early morning and about having wings clipped by childhood.  Jane Robinson  followed Bob, making a welcome return to Last Wednesday and moving from the scent of science – or is it the scent of success – to close examination causing people to fallout of pictures! And after Jane, the final reader of the night was Martin Egan who finished up by bringing us on a roller coaster rider of emotions and intensity, and making sure we paid attention by jazzing up our participation!

 

And, across the water, Time Hollywood correspondent Rebecca Keegan took to the stage at Rocky Sullivan’s, with fellow readers, including Rachel Levitsky, Oriane Stender and MD Lisa McLaughlin.  We are delighted to report that, thanks to devotion, commitment and hard work on both sides of the pond, these events are taking off nicely and are consistently showing the same great standard that we have come to expect in Last Wednesday Dublin.  And an event well worth visiting when you are across the pond, and you can come across in a Wall Street water taxi, indulge in a Rocky’s pizza in the pub pizzeria before going into the theatre space where you can listen to great work and have the opportunity to take to the mic on the impressive stage.  And for the readers on this side of the Atlantic who keep hinting about the benefits of a lectern – Rockys have one!
