10th Annual PoetryFest: Nick Laird's Opening Remarks

From November 2-4, 2018, we celebrated a decade of “literary revelry” (The New Yorker) with the 10th anniversary of PoetryFest, which draws esteemed poets drawn from both sides of the Atlantic. Here are curator Nick Laird's remarks at the top of the opening night event, Favorite Poems, at which special guests and festival poets read the Irish verses they love most. Full lineup and selections at irishartscenter.org/event/poetry-fest-2018.
