Hodges Figgis recently hosted the launch of new Illustrative book, ‘Hello Hinterland’, at the famous Dublin Bookstore, situated near Trinity college on Dawson Street.
Both Author Martin Holohan and Illustrator Clare Lynch read various Poems and Stories from the Volume to a very enchanted audience on the 1st Floor. Both Artists were indeed very comfortable throughout the Launch, cajoling the crowd along with tales that were always imaginative, displaying well rounded accounts of the Fingal countryside on the east coast of Ireland…a mere stones throw up from Dublin City. The event took place on April 28th 2022, on Poetry Day Ireland.
The audience it has to be said certainly became as relaxed as the Artists as they happily engaged in the array of finely crafted nibbles and excellent refreshments on hand.
This book will go down very well with the general reader who has an interest in history and culture, since it is written in a very folkloric and conversational style. It appeals to an audience young and old alike, as the illustrative nature of the book draws the younger audience in too. A unique learning tool that can be included in any school curriculum.
Hello Hinterland is available from Hodges Figgis on Dawson Street and Tales For Tadpoles, Drury Street, both situated in the centre of Dublin. And via the net at www.Choicepublishing.ie through their online bookshop. It is selling at a retail price of €25.00.
