Join us for a showcase of three of the most exciting poets at work in Ireland today. Nithy Kasa, Raquel McKee and Kimberly Reyes create insightful and provocative visions of life in Ireland in 2021, encompassing family histories, national myths, pop culture, political organising, the meaning of home, the points at which the life of the mind collides with the demands of the everyday.
These three artists are at early stages in their careers, yet have already made significant marks on the literary world: Kasa has been commissioned by Poetry Ireland and RTÉ; McKee has performed her poetry at the Northern Irish Assembly and the Black Lives Matter rally in Belfast; Reyes has published three books in America and is in Cork as a Fullbright scholar, studying Irish literature and film.
This reading and discussion is an exciting and timely opportunity to hear from three widely talented and fascinating poets.
This is a live broadcast event and will have a Q&A at the end. If you’d like to ask a question, you can do so via Youtube’s live chat.
