A recently released  60c stamp was commissioned by Ireland’s Postage Service to celebrate Dublin’s permanent designation as a UNESCO City of Literature in 2010. It was unveiled at Roddy Doyle’s Fighting Words Centre  on Thursday, May 16th, 2013.

Designed by the Stone Twins, two Amsterdam-based Irish designers, the bright yellow rectangle includes all 224 words of 17 year old Eoin Moore’s short story which strives to capture the “essence” of the capital.

Chez Potwin,  we are excited to see another ‘E-O-I-N’  receiving notoriety.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
