Poetry Ireland, Friday 25th October

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, during which are intended 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.

This event is free but booking is essential. All are welcome to join in for the evening readings or for the earlier Afternoon Symposium.

For any enquiries about the event please email jazmine@carcanet.co.uk or call 001618348730 or 01-6789815.
