Description

Carcanet at 50: Poetry Ireland Evening Readings

Evening Readings from 7.30pm

Over the last fifty years Carcanet Press has done a great deal for Irish poetry, bringing back into circulation the work of Austin Clarke and Padraic Fallon; for a time publishing Michael Hartnett and Paul Durcan; more recently taking on the Anvil Press list with its large Irish constituency, including Dennis O’Driscoll, Martina Evans, James Harpur, Thomas McCarthy; and most importantly publishing outstanding poetry by contemporaries: fifteen editions of Thomas Kinsella, eighteen of Eavan Boland, and working with new poets including Sinéad Morrissey, Adam Crothers, Tara Bergin, Moya Cannon and Mary O’Malley among others.

Please join us to celebrate Carcanet’s Jubilee at our Dublin party, an evening of celebratory readings by some of Carcanet’s most celebrated contemporary Irish poets: Sinéad Morrissey, Tara Bergin, Thomas McCarthy, Mary O’Malley and Moya Cannon. This evening event will follow a day of presentations, discussions and poetry readings (Afternoon Symposium), during which we intend to explore the relationships between publisher and poet over the years, Irish poetry beyond Ireland, and the development of an indie poetry press that has survived half a century. Please see the separate event listing to book free tickets here.

There are also Facebook events for the daytime event and the evening event. For any enquiries about the event please email jazmine@carcanet.co.uk or call 001618348730 or 01-6789815.
