Event Description
Irish poet Eamon Grennan will read from his recent work on Thursday April 25 at 7:30 in the Scheuer Room of Kohlberg Hall.

Eamon Grennan has authored more than ten collections of poems, most recently *Out of Sight: New and Selected Poems* in 2010. Grennan has also written a book of essays, *Facing the Music: Irish Poetry in the 20th Century* (1999). He won the PEN Award for poetry in translation for *Selected Poems of Giacomo Leopardi* (1997), and the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize from the Academy of American Poets for *Still Life with Waterfall* (2002). He has also won several Pushcart Prizes. He has been awarded fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Guggenheim Foundation. On awarding Grennan the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize, Judge Robert Wrigley noted that “Grennan would have us know—no, would have us see, feel, hear, taste and smell—that the world, moment by ordinary or agonizing moment, lies chock-full with its own clarifications and rewards.”
