Aging and the Arts Poetry Circle: Contemporary Irish Poetry

Saturday, March 26, 2022 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

This event will take place in the forum at the Health Services Innovation Building (HSIB) an indoor/outdoor space.  HSIB is located at 1670 E Drachman St. Tucson, AZ 85721, a five minute walk from the Poetry Center.  All are welcome! 

Join us for monthly poetry discussions, led by docents from the UA Poetry Center. The event is free, and no preparation or knowledge of poetry is necessary to participate.  For anyone who enjoys poetry or learning more about poets in a conversational setting, this informal gathering includes many opportunities to contribute to the conversation and ask questions. It is also a great way to meet people in the community who have similar interests.

This topic will focus on contemporary Irish poetry and feature work from a range of writers, including W. B. Yeats, Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon, Thomas Kinsella, Eavan Boland, Paul Muldoon, and Nuala Ni Dohmnaill.
