A poetry reading to commemorate Seamus Heaney and his days at UC Berkeley

Poet Seamus Heaney

Cosponsored by the Irish Literary and Historical Society of San Francisco.

Join us to remember Irish poet and Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney (1939-2013) and listen to readings and reflections of scholars and poets who knew him during his time spent in residence at the University of California at Berkeley (1970 - 71 and periods in the 1990s) and those influenced by him in later years.

Presentations by UC Berkeley Professors Robert Tracy and Robert Hass. 

Bring your favorite Heaney poem and share it with the audience.
