      EVENT DETAILS
      Riverrun Reading: Canadian and Irish Poets

      Riverrun is an international forum (spilling the banks of decorum) and a Smörgåsbord marathon poetry event. It will feature dozens of microreadings, little splashes of poets from Canada, Ireland, America, and the UK. There will be a sign-up sheet circulated at the event and Irish authors are strongly encouraged to come and read a poem (2 minutes max!). The reading is a combined capstone of what have already been described as the “generational” conference called Text/Sound/Performance and the “foundational” event of the Associated Writing Programmes Ireland taking place at UCD and the National Library 25-27 April. Approximately 125 Canadian poets and literary scholars join forces with 75 Irish authors and literary scholars to map out new future possibilities of writing. You are very welcome into this conversation! More details about the Canadian event are available here and the Irish event here. Beyond the Riverrun Reading, there are many free events, including readings, musical performances, lectures, and more.
