The Irish Arts Center of NYC is holding their 12th annual—and first digital— PoetryFest, with curator Nick Laird convening five poets from Ireland and North America for a virtual celebration of verse. See readings of the Center’s Favorite Irish Poems, the opening night tradition of special guests and festival participants sharing the Irish verses they love most, followed by online readings and conversations. Readers include Emma Dabiri, Ailbhe Darcy, Kit de Waal, Miriam Gamble, Terrance Hayes, Nick Laird, Ada Limón, Belinda McKeon, Paula Meehan, Graham Norton, Katie Raissian, Leanne Shapton and Zadie Smith, plus Ciaran O'Reilly and Charlotte Moore of the Irish Repertory Theatre, John Waters of Glucksman Ireland House, Brendan Costello of Irish American Writers & Artists, and George Heslin of the New York Irish Center.
