Irish Arts Center's 14th Annual PoetryFest

A step away from the din of Midtown—and a haven from devices and other distractions—PoetryFest sets its own pace for an exchange of emotions and ideas through the words of bards from both sides of the Atlantic. In this engaging “literary revelry” (New Yorker) curated by Nick Laird, we configure our flexible theatre into its most intimate setting for readings and conversations that celebrate the poet’s capacity to sculpt words into breathtaking visions of our world.

Most events are free, but reservations are recommended.

Tara Bergin, Sara Berkeley, Timothy Donnelly, Elisa Gonzalez, Terrance Hayes, Thomas McCarthy, Mary Noonan, Sharon Olds, and Tom Sleigh.
