Wake: Up to Poetry
Some updates on the wonderful world of Irish poetry in North America: We have received Brendan Kennelly’s newest book, The Essential Brendan Kennelly, today! Very exciting news.
The Women’s Anthology tour is well underway. The ladies have since been in Chicago, Pittsburgh, and New York, with great crowds at each place. Thank you everyone who came out to listen! While the women have enjoyed their time, they’ve also had some adjustments to make. With the crazy-cold weather that’s been happening recently, the poets had to deal with a Nor’easter, something that they are not used to in their rainy, coastal home of Ireland.
If you haven’t checked out the new Women’s Anthology yet, please do! Look for a tour stop near you to catch a glimpse of poetic legend and listen to some beautiful poetry.
