A happy bunch of book lovers, and especially poetry book lovers, descended on Devonport Library on Wednesday evening, 6 July, to celebrate the launch of “Apple and Tree” by Jo Emeney.
There was a lot of mingling and imbibing of delightful drinks and nibbles before Jenny Cole from Cape Catley Books opened the proceedings. DD (Dear Dame) Chris Cole Catley spoke, as did the inimitable Kevin Ireland. Then Jo herself stood and told us about her poems and treated the audience to some readings of them. This is Jo’s first collection and is accompanied by a CD of her reading them. Click here to take a look.
