Absolutely thrilled to launch Skippy’s Tale, my second illustrated book this week in Limerick City.
It’s taken over 2 1/2 years for this to come to fruition, since my good friend Des Hayes first recounted the story of a childhood pet who strayed in one day.
Aside from relating a true story (with a little imagination/supposition), the book is my attempt to provide a platform for parents to introduce the topic of Death to a younger audience.
Ruby Sundays (formerly Café Noir) at 84 O’Connell St. is the venue, and all are welcome.
I’m also especially pleased to have the musical debut of Petty Cash (Pamela Dunne, Dan Collopy and Ivan Casey) providing some tuneful accompaniments to the event.
