Launch of ‘Liberty Hall’ by Michael O’Loughlin
MoLI, in association with New Island Books, is delighted to host the online launch of poet Michael O’Loughlin’s latest book, Liberty Hall. To celebrate the launch of this remarkable book, O’Loughlin will be in conversation with fellow poet Rachael Hegarty.
In this new book – a fusion of poetry, visual images and prose memoirs – Liberty Hall becomes both a real and imaginary space, a physical building and a state of mind in which to be free; a place where the boundaries between verbal and visual, poetry and prose, past and present, city and suburb, local and global, all become fluid.
If you would like to preorder the book, it is available now from the MoLI shop!
