Irish poets Rita Ann Higgins and Sinéad Morrissey will visit Emory University this spring to give readings from their poetry.
The event is part of a celebration of Women’s History Month in March and National Poetry Month in April, according to Emory.
The readings, free and open to the public, will take place at the university’s Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library.
Rita Ann Higgins will read on Tuesday, March 27, at 5 p.m. as part of the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library Reading Series. Sinéad Morrissey will share her work a week later, on Tuesday, April 3, at 5:30 p.m.
“We are pleased to welcome these two Irish poets to the Rose Library to share their work and connect with the thriving Irish village at Emory,” Rose Library interim director Jennifer Meehan said. “These two readings will be wonderful opportunities for the poets, faculty, students and community to engage in the ongoing dialogue between poetry and archives, inspired by the Irish and poetry collections of the Rose Library and the tradition of poetry at Emory.”
The Rose Library is located on Level 10 of Emory University’s Woodruff Library. For disability-related accommodations at these readings, please contact Emory Libraries events manager Maya Cody in advance at 404-727-7620 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
