Savage brings ‘Fair Day’ to Left Bank
Belfast — Left Bank Books, 109 Church St., will welcome local artist and photographer Sally Savage to sign and discuss her new book, “A Fair Day — The Horsemen of County Kerry,” Friday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. The event is free and the community is welcome.
A photographic journey into the lives and barns of these Irish horsemen, “A Fair Day” offers a window into this traditional way of life that is vanishing in Ireland. Initially spurred by her own recollections of a childhood set on her parents' dairy farm, Savage attended dozens of horse fairs in Ireland over the past eight years. A persistent observer, camera in hand, she has recorded and portrayed a world that she reveres for its timeless connections among people, horses and place.
Growing up on a local working farm gave Savage an intimate understanding of day to day life in the countryside, a deep, long-lasting appreciation for rural dwellers and a profound love for animals. This love has never left her and she continues to raise and care for a flock of sheep, miniature horses and chickens.
No reservations are required, but space is limited and seating requests in advance are most welcome. For more information about the talk or to reserve a seat or a signed copy of the new book, call Left Bank Books at 338-9009. The shop is open daily.
