BOOK LAUNCH of SOUNDINGS,
by Emily Hancock

Come join us as we celebrate the publication of SOUNDINGS, a book of haiku, by Stone Soup's former staff member and host at "Of Vine & Verse", Emily Hancock.

         

This limited edition book, produced at St Brigid Press, will collect over thirty of Emily's haiku, each a small meditation on being in nature and the nature of being, as well as three prints from her original block carvings. All of the type is set by hand, letterpress printed on beautiful mould-made paper, and hand-sewn with linen thread.

On Friday, November 7th, at 5:30pm, Emily will give a short reading and sign copies of the book, which may be purchased at that time from Stone Soup. Light refreshments will be provided, with dinner available from the cafe.

Hope to see you there!
