Colin Dardis: The Dogs of Humanity

Thursday 8 Aug
EastSide Visitor Centre

8pm
FREE (booking essential)


Acclaimed poet Colin Dardis launches his new collection, The Dogs of Humanity, published by Fly On The Wall Press. Using dogs and other animals as a central motif, Dardis looks at how people treat each other in an increasingly toxic world. Dealing with themes of bullying, self-identity, chauvinism and mental health, these poems challenge the failings of today's society.

The event will be launched by Damien Smyth (ACNI) and Colin will be joined by poet Dan Eggs.

 "A quirky, singular voice which sets the writer apart from the standing army of Irish poets." - Poetry Ireland Review
