LIBRARY BOOK LAUNCH – MARTIN KEAVENEY’s 4th book is released to the public this week at MAYO COUNTY LIBRARY.
Gus Watt is a local trickster who lives with his ageing parents and works for a local plasterer when not developing one of his ‘schemes’. One boring Tuesday he meets the woman of his dreams – twice. He is unable to choose between the two Marys, leading to a situation more tangled than the briars that surround his caravan retreat deep in the local wood. Caravan is a comic novella that follows the novels The Mackon Country and Delia Meade and the local bestseller The Rainy Day, a collection of short stories that sold out on its 2019 launch at the County Library. All of Martin’s books have been published by boutique UK publisher, Penniless Press. Followed by wine & cheese reception. Join us for a pleasant literary evening (No cover charge).
Please reserve your copy at the launch for stock & catering purposes here
FRIDAY 25th NOVEMBER 2022 at 6.30pm in MAYO COUNTY LIBRARY, CASTLEBAR.
