Launch: Running feet, sharp noses


This event has now passed.

We’re delighted to host the launch of Running feet, sharp noses: Essays on the animal world. Please join us with Paper Visual Art on Wednesday, 22nd February at 6:00pm for some conversation, refreshments, and readings from June Caldwell, Sabrina Mandanici, Darragh McCausland, and Jessica Traynor.

Running feet, sharp noses is an essential collection of essays on the animal world. Each piece is a profound meditation on how animals affect our sense of self, our memories, our actions.

With contributions by Latifa Akay, Sara Baume, John Berger, June Caldwell, Niamh Campbell, Vona Groarke, Edward Hoagland, Tim MacGabhann, Sabrina Mandanici, Darragh McCausland, Honor Moore, Eileen Myles, Stephen Sexton, Jessica Traynor, Erica Van Horn, and Suzanne Walsh.



‘Sensitive, playful, and every bit as charming as its subjects, Running feet, sharp noses is a modern bestiary, a fitting tribute to the fragile and dear connections we forge with animals, and their ability to capture the literary imagination.’
– Roisin Kiberd, author of The Disconnect

‘Extraordinary … Animal lovers, or indeed lovers of great, philosophical writing, will adore this book.’
