The Coracle programme presents …
A Dinefwr Literature Festival preview event.
A Map of Love
Irish author Jackie Hayden stages his love of Welsh and Irish music and literature at an event that mingles his passion for the work of Welsh writer Dylan Thomas with his long association with the musical tradition of both cultures. Hayden’s new book A map of Love: around Wales with Dylan Thomas is published as a collaboration between Welsh publisher Iconau and record label Fflach, its release in electronic format is a pilot project for the Coracle eBook platform. To celebrate the marriage of traditional and contemporary creative production contributions will be made to this evening of free entertainment by Jim Parc Nest, the Archdruid of Wales (whose recording on CD is free with the book) winner of the Dylan Thomas International Prize, Lucy Caldwell and Welsh and Irish fiddlers, Caradog Rhys Williams and Tanya Murphy.
Performances by these writers will also take place at the Dinefwr Literature Festival in Wales between 29 June and 1 July 2012
This event will be followed by a book signing and reception.
This project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg 4a programme.
