Springtime in Paris

I'm so looking forward to reading in Paris next week with Deirdre Cartmill and Maureen Boyle at the Irish Cultural Centre.
Hopefully there will be time for a little sightseeing and as I've never been in Paris before I want to fit in as much as possible. Thinking Montmartre and maybe a boat trip on the Seine. One of the best tips I've had so far, from a friend who lives in France, is before I say anything else say, Je suis desole. Je ne parle pas bien Francais. Detalils of the event below - and any other tips welcome.

New CavanKerry Book

I am really delighted to have a poem included in the second volume of the Waiting Room Reader, published by the excellent CavanKerry Press, New York.
The Waiting Room Reader: Stories to Keep you Company, will be placed in many waiting rooms in hospitals in the tri-state area. Over 10,000 free copies of the first volume of the Reader were placed in over 300 waiting rooms in more than 63 hospitals in the tri-state area.
