We are delighted and proud to stock the debut collection from Annemarie Ni Churreain, a poet from North West Donegal and published by Doire Press in Connemara. Bloodroot is a collection of poems in which Annemarie bears witness to the lived experience of women in Ireland, particularly those who have been silenced and the many nameless women who were imprisoned in Irish institutions. Annemarie says of the collection "With every reading of these poems, I'm conscious of my own history, my grandmothers', and of the women from whom I come, whose voices were not always heard, whose stories were not only muted out of the family, but out of society. The poems in Bloodroot come out of a place where silence was expected and enforced, and I never take for granted the fact that poetry allows me to turn that silence inside out." Bloodroot is a beautiful collection that will make a treasured gift for any literature fan. Check out Annemarie reading the title poem from the book, at the launch in the James Joyce Centre in November 2017.
