The Small Impact Writers' will be launching their first publication (Hidden Depths) on Thursday 9th December, in Navan Library at 7pm.
Hidden Depths is a collection of short stories and poems stories from far and near, places as diverse as: Poland where during WW2 everything changed, from the Black Forest in Germany to Gundagai in New South Wales in Australia to the rugged mountains of Tora Bora in Afghanistan and our own ancient hill of Tara where the Phantom Whistler has been heard since 1534 and of course the curse of Tara and from there to above all places Sweeney's Garden where ever that is?
And for the season that's in it there's a story or two with a Christmas flavour.
Typesetting and cover design by Oscar Duggan.
