Vital Signs, published by Poetry Ireland, is a new anthology of powerful and courageous responses to the human experience of illness and healing. There are times when we all need a “reset" and you are invited to join us for a Poetry S.O.S. to do just that. Hosted by poet and poetry pharmacist, Jane Clarke will select and prescribe a Vital Signs poem for you, designed to make you feel better, which you can bring home and read at your leisure.  Each session is ten minutes long and advance booking is essential. 

Admission: €10 for an individual ten-minute slot

Vital Signs edited by poet Martin Dyar, includes poems by Leland Bardwell, Eavan Boland, Raymond Carver, Vona Groarke, Paula Meehan. Paul Muldoon, Diane Seuss, Enda Wyley, Rita Dove and many more. Representing the best in contemporary and classic poetry, it is a book for our times, a book for every reader and a testament to the value of the imagination in the face of adversity.


This event is presented in association with Poetry Ireland
