Irish Arts Center Poem of the Week: Annemarie Ní Churreáin's "Family Law"

"But daughter, we come from the spriest woods. / You and I are of the roots / that uphold an alphabet to the sun." A poem at the intersection of family, landscape, and language: Annemarie Ní Churreáin introduces her PoetryFest 2018 reading of "Family Law," a selection from BLOODROOT, her debut collection "dedicated to my foremothers, in particular the women of my family whose voices were not always heard."
