Irish Volunteers
The Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry: Sarah Jackson
with introduction by Nick Laird

Thursday, November 21st, 7pm
at Glucksman Ireland House NYU, 1 Washington Mews at 5th Ave.

Sarah Jackson is the 2013 winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize for Poetry.  She won the Prize for Pelt, a remarkable collection of lyric poems that meditate on unseen influences, fleeting insights, patterns of meaning, and shapes of time.

The Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry at Glucksman Ireland House honors Tom, public school teacher in Philadelphia, lover of poetry, and Glucksman Ireland House member since 1997; the lecture is endowed by his family.  We are especially pleased that the Quinlan Lecture is offered in partnership with the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queens University, Belfast.  The Seamus Heaney Prize for poetry is awarded annually by the Heaney Centre to the author of the best first book of poems published in Ireland or Britain.

Nick Laird, award-winning Northern Irish poet and novelist, will introduce Jackson.  Laird has won the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, the Ireland Chair of Poetry Award, the Betty Trask Prize, a Somerset Maugham award, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.  Laird’s remarks will include a tribute to Seamus Heaney.
