Irish Poet to Speak at Le Moyne College

<p>SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Irish poet Eamonn Wall will speak at Le Moyne College on Monday, April 23, at 4 p.m. in Grewen Auditorium.<br /> <br /> Wall is the Jefferson Smurfit Professor of Irish Studies at University of Missouri-St. Louis. Kathleen McCracken in the Poetry Ireland Review has described Wall’s poems as “charged with a thoroughly contemporary and a profoundly literary awareness of what it means to be Irish, and a writer, in America.” His poetry collections include “Refuge at DeSoto Bend” (2004), “The Crosses” (2000), and “Iron Mountain Road” (1997). His essay collection, “From the Sin-é Café to the Black Hills,” won the 2000 ACIS Durkan Book Prize. <br /> <br /> The talk is free and open to the public. It is part of the Irish Lecture Series at Le Moyne, which was created with the generous support of the Strategic Initiative Fund to celebrate the College’s creation of an Irish literature minor. For more information, contact Professor Kate Costello-Sullivan at 445-4215 or sullivkp@lemoyne.edu</p>
