Poems Upstairs: Science Meets Poetry - VIDEO

I'm delighted to be able to link to a video recording made of a reading I did with fellow-physicists Kate Dempsey and Iggy McGovern as part of the Poems Upstairs series at Books Upstairs, supported by Poetry Ireland. 

The reading marked the anniversary of Bequerel’s discovery of radioactivity and was introduced by Jim Malone, Robert Boyle Professor (Emeritus) of Medical Physics at Trinity College Dublin.

I read first, followed by Kate and then Iggy. There is also a Q&A and then we all read one final piece. The entire video runs to just over an hour and special thanks must go to Eoin McGovern for documenting the event.

So here it is. Hope you enjoy it, if you can spare an hour of your time.

The video file is too large to embed here but you can find the reading at the following link on Vimeo:
