Salmon Poetry takes its name from the Salmon of Knowledge in Celtic mythology and was established in 1981 as an alternative voice in Irish literature. The Salmon, a journal of poetry and prose was a flagship for writers in the west of Ireland, and Salmon’s first books, Gonella by Eva Bourke and Goddess on the Mervue Bus by Rita Ann Higgins broke new ground for women poets. Since then over 300 volumes of poetry have been produced, and Salmon has become one of the most important publishers in the Irish literary world. By specializing in the promotion of new poets, particularly women poets, Salmon has enriched Irish literary publishing.  Join us for a launch of Salmon poet  Estha Weiner’s new book, IN THE WEATHER OF THE WORLD, and a celebration of Salmon Poetry with three other Salmon poets, Patricia Brody, Phil Fried, and Bertha Rogers.   Musical Interlude by Michael Braudy.
