      Vona Groarke and Frank McGuinness Launch

      The Gallery Press, in association with Poetry Ireland, will be celebrating the launch of Double Negative by Vona Groarke and The Wedding Breakfast by Frank McGuinness.  Vona Groarke has published ten previous books with The Gallery Press, the two latest (both published in 2016) being Selected Poems (winner of the Pigott Prize) and Four Sides Full, a book-length personal essay (and an RTÉ ‘Book on One’). A member of Aosdána, she was a 2018-19 Fellow of the Cullman Center at the New York Public Library. She teaches in the Centre for New Writing at the University of Manchester. Frank McGuinness was born in County Donegal in 1953 and now lives in Dublin. He has written fifteen plays (including Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, Carthaginians and Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me) and twenty adaptations of European classics. His version of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House won a ‘Tony’ award and his most recent play, Donegal, was staged at the Abbey Theatre. The Gallery Press has also published Booterstown, The Sea with No Ships, The Stone Jug, Dulse and In a Town of Five Thousand People. Frank McGuinness is Professor Emeritus of Creative Writing in UCD which conferred on him the Ulysses Medal (2019).
