Irish poet Annemarie Curran reads from her collection The Poison Glen.
From The Gallery Press:
The story of the stolen or missing child sits at the heart of The Poison Glen, alongside a desire to bear witness to family loss and cultures of silence in Ireland. Weaving together landscape, history, and the compelling mythology of a Donegal site known as “The Poison Glen,” here are poems of grit and burning, of wildness, grace and magic, of dreaming and compassion.
Annemarie Curran is from Donegal in northwest Ireland, and recipient of The Next Generation Award from the Irish Arts Council and co-recipient of The Markievicz Award, given to artists who recognize the role of women in contemporary culture.
Free books will be given away to attendees on a first-come basis.
About the School of the Arts Reading Series:
The SOTA Reading Series invites scholars and authors to campus for dynamic talks that cross over traditional program barriers. Invitations are extended to the most seasoned critics and artists, who can (and do) deliver scintillating talks on topics of wide appeal to campus and community cultures. The School of the Arts manages this series as a way to forge new connections between the Arts disciplines as well as among the other disciplines in the College.
The SOTA Reading Series is possible through the generosity of the Warren and Ava Sewell Foundation of Bremen, Georgia, whose longstanding commitment to the west Georgia community has brought innumerable benefits as well as having provided for inventive programming like this reading series. All events are open and free to the public.
