"Sunflower" A first book of poems by William G Hodgins was launched in Navan Library on Thursday the 23rd of April by Trim poet and writer Tommy Murray with guest readings from members of The Meath Writers' Circle and the Navan Writers. Tom French who made the arrangements also read a number of his poems, and a few others contributed as well if my memory serves.
Willie is a native of Bohermeen and has been a member of The Meath Writers' Circle for the past seven or eight years and these poems touch on everything from personal experience to observations of the surrounding countryside, especially the area where he grew up. Should be for sale in the local shops in the next few days. Some delightful poems inside and one to add to your collection. Price €10 euro.
