“Kennedy, master of the Irish-American lament in works like Billy Phelan’s Greatest Game and Ironweed, proves here he can play with both hands and improvise on a theme without losing the beat.” -THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Join us for an evening with William Kennedy, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Ironweed, screenwriter and playwright, celebrated with readings by Mary Tierney, Aedin Moloney, and Dan Barry from William Kennedy’s works IronweedRoscoe and others, music by Tara O’Grady, and a conversation with William Kennedy moderated by Dan Barry.

Afterwards join us in the IAC Gallery for a reception and book signing.

William Kennedy, author, screenwriter and playwright, was born and raised in Albany, New York. Kennedy has brought his native city to literary life in LegsBilly Phelan’s Greatest Game, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ironweed. He is the founding director of the New York State Writers Institute and, in 1993, was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He has received numerous literary awards, including the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
