Me and the World were Chatting

By Harriet O'Carroll

description

Harriet O'Carroll was born in 1941 in Kilkenny. She began her writing career in 1979 with short stories and poetry, before moving to writing for radio, TV and stage. Among the TV programmes she has written for are Fair City and Glenroe (RTE),  and Aristocrats  (BBC).  A number of her radio plays have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4. She has won a multitude of literary awards. Many of her poems have been published by literary journals. Today "Harry" a sufferer from Parkinson's  lives in Dublin.

Harriet is seeking to have a book of her poems published with all receipts going to Parkinson's Association of Ireland

Poems have been selected and the book has been prepared in draft form. The poems cover a wide range of topics - friendship, loss, questions about our human condition, beauty, nature - presented with a mix of imaginative imagery, insghts, poignancy and a humour that is often whimsical.

A publisher has been chosen, and the hope is to have a print run of between 200 and 250 copies.

An outline publicity/communications plan has been prepared to support the crowdfunding project.

The main cost is for design/publishing/printing/communication for which estimates have been received. There will also be costs for book launch, post, and miscellaneous other items.

The tentative date for the book launch is early April 2022, venue to be decided. All those donating to the project will receive an invitation to attend.

The main risk to the project relates to Harriet's health at a book launch. If she cannot attend, there will be a brief video presentation as back up.

Sincere thanks is offered for any donation which will ultimately help to benefit Parkinsons sufferers in Ireland.

Second Update - December '21

Thank you all for your kind and generous donations.  The support that Harriet enjoyed for this project was phenomenal, and we wish to thank you all most sincerely. 

 

The book is currently being designed, with plans for a print run in the new year.  We expect to launch the book in  spring 2022 and will be back in contact with all the funders with  the details as soon as it is arranged.  The raffle for the rewards will take place at that time  We are pleased to announce that due to the support that this project enjoyed we will be making an interim donation to the Parkinson's Association before the end of December, with more to follow after the book launch of ‘Me and the World Were Chatting’.  Details of the book launch will in due course appear in the Parkinson’s Association of Ireland newsletter and website.

Me and the World were Chatting Update 1

Sincere thanks to everyone who has donated. We have met our funding target and a bit more, so we can now say with confidence that we will be able to meet our two objectives of publishing the book and making  a big donation to Parkinson's Assoc - a wonderful organisation that does so much for Parkinson's sufferers and their families. A second update will be issued in the near future.
