Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin April 7

Join us Thursday at 7 pm as we welcome Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin as part of a co-sponsored evening with Glucksman Ireland House at NYU. Eiléan is one of Ireland’s premier poets as well as a renowned Renaissance scholar, editor and translator. Her 2009 collection The Sun-fish, (Wake Forest University Press) was the winner of the 2010 International Griffin Poetry Prize. The judges’ citation noted the “beguiling poet…leads us into altered or empty landscapes…” with poems that possess “…a certain magic that proves not only to be believable but necessary, in fact, to our understanding of the world around us.”    

[This note about timing is a correction to an earlier version.] Fordham doctoral candidate Cathal Pratt and his quartet The Winter Court, will play a mix of traditional Irish language songs and instrumental folk tunes as the audience files in and during the reception.

Members of the audience will have the chance to win a free book of poetry; all students will also receive a free, illustrated broadside with an excerpt from A Musician’s Gallery.

The event is free and open to the public. A book signing and refreshments will follow.
