Irish Arts Center’s eighth annual PoetryFest showcases an array of top poets from Ireland and the U.S. Come for three days of readings, conversations, and signings not only to celebrate the kinship between Irish and U.S. poetry, but also for some good old-fashioned conviviality in the intimate atmosphere of Irish Arts Center.
This year, the festival continues to grow in new and rich ways as we welcome Northern Irish novelist and poet Nick Laird as curator. Participating poets include O’Shaughnessy Award-winner Tom French, Pulitzer Prize-winner Yusef Komunyakaa, poet and chief poetry critic for The Irish Times John McAuliffe, Rooney Prize-winner Medbh McGuckian, Pulitzer Prize-winner Sharon Olds, and more.
Featured poets will include Kate Miller, who is presenting the sixth annual Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry at Glucksman Ireland House NYU on Thursday, November 3rd.
