James Linnane will launch his first book of short stories in Jack Quinn's of Scurlogstown on Saturday the 3rd of December at 8pm. James is a member of both the Boyne Writers and The Meath Writers' Circle and this is his fourth book to date. His own blog, "Bookchat Corner" link to the right, has further information on this and it should be an interesting night with plenty of music, poetry and song, and an open mic for anyone who wants to get up and recite a verse or two. His other publications are, "Never Take An Irishman Seriously Unless He's Armed, The Life And Times Of A 'Gotcha', and The Potless Generation". The short stories chronicle a life that takes him from Galway to the building sites of Dublin, through bar work, a childhood growing up in County Meath and later times in New York or Boston or the west coast of America and much more. Available over on Amazon or Ebay but Jack Quinn's on the 3rd is the place to be.
