Advance Notice

Irish poet to give public reading

Irish poet Eamon Grennan will give a free, public reading at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 6, in the Jones Rooms of the Woodruff Library.

"Grennan's poetry captures and offers back to readers those fleeting observations that we often let pass unrecorded," says Elizabeth Chase, MARBL coordinator for research services and a doctoral candidate specializing in Irish literature. "He exults in both the natural world and the ordinariness of human experience through verse he describes as ‘celebratory elegy,' and his poems allow us to marvel with him."

Selected books by Grennan and a limited edition broadside will be available for sale and signing.

Grennan's reading is the third and final event in this year's Raymond Danowski Poetry Library Reading Series, sponsored by the Emory Libraries' Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library, the Creative Writing Program and Emory College.
