An eagerly awaited new book, ‘This Landscape’s Fierce Embrace: The Poetry of Francis Harvey’, will be launched next Tuesday night, June 10 at 7.30pm at the Abbey Hotel, Donegal Town.

A member of Aosdana, prize-winning poet and playwright, Francis Harvey was born in Enniskillen but has spent most of his life in Donegal.

For this compilation, his admirers from Ireland and around the world have contributed to a collection that includes paintings and photographs of the Donegal landscape about which he writes so movingly, personal essays and poems celebrating his poetry, and critical essays that explore Harvey’s major themes in greater depth.

The Dublin launch will be held on Thursday, 12 June, at 5pm at the Campus Bookstore at UCD’s Belfield n conjunction with the American Conference for Irish Studies and the Canadian Association for Irish Studies.
