On 23rd April William G Hodgins launched his first book of poetry titled Sunflower. The book was launched by well known Trim poet and writer and leader of the Meath Writers Circle Tommy Murray. I missed the launch myself as I was busy elsewhere but would love to have been there. I believe it was a great night with members of: the Meath Writers Circle, the Small Impact Writers' Group and well known poet Tom French reading some of their own work. Tom French made the arrangements and according to reports did a great job.
William ( Willie )as I fondly know him by, dedicated the book to the memory of his Deceased Daughter Lucy Sheila who loved growing sunflowers and also loved poetry and prose.
