November 2 - November 4

We celebrate the fourth annual IAC PoetryFest by expanding our offerings and growing the line-up of terrific energies at work in and around contemporary Irish poetry. This year, the festival reaches exciting new horizons, as it considers the rich relationships between Irish poets and their peers and counterparts in the American scene.

IAC PoetryFest 2012 features a special tribute to the distinguished and influential poet John Montague.

Featured poets: Ciaran Berry, Anne Carson, Timothy Donnelly, Theo Dorgan, John Montague, Leanne O’Sullivan, Brenda Shaughnessy and C. K. Williams.
