Over The Edge Welcomes Galway-Lorient Poetry Exchange
Later in the month, the May Over the Edge: Open Reading in Galway City Library will feature Lorient poet Patrick Argenté. Monsieur Argenté is a retired teacher and social worker who lives in Lorient, Brittany and is the author of four poetry collections. The most recent of these, Ernestine ou Julie, was published in 2010 by Manoirante. Monsieur Argenté’s bilingual reading is in honor of the 35th anniversary of the twinning of Galway City with Lorient.
“We’re proud to work with the Galway-Lorient twinning committee, and hope these two events are the beginning of a tradition of literary exchange between our two cities,” commented Susan Millar DuMars, co-organiser of Over The Edge.
