POETRY EVENING With Guest Poet Katie Donovan

 Recipient of the Lawrence O’ Shaughnessy Award from the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota- an award given to an Irish poet in recognition of literary achievement and contribution to the arts in Ireland.

*WEDNESDAY 21ST   FEBRUARY 2018 at 7.30pm*

 

  • Katie is from Dublin and studied at Trinity College, Dublin & at the University of California Berkeley

 

  • Katie’s most recent book ‘Off Duty’, published by Bloodaxe, tells of the death of her husband, Stephen Sensbach, who was a cellist with the National Symphony Orchestra, from cancer and her need to survive for her two young children.  It has received much acclaim.

 

  • Katie taught English in Hungary for a year, worked as a journalist for ‘The Irish Times for 13 years and was a lecturer in Creative Writing in NUI, Maynooth  and has published 5 Books of Poetry

 

 

*Past pupils are invited to read, either a favourite poem from school days or beyond or one of your own poems.  Include a few words of introduction that tell us the reason for your choice.  Current pupils and staff from St. Dominic’s will also read.

  • If you would like to read, please contact me in advance with your name and the title of the poem.

    We especially value the readings of Past Pupils, since our current students love to hear the wide range of the poetry chosen and it gives them a sense of poetry valued outside of school and the curriculum.

     

    *Phone: Maureen Boyle 02890280861 or email: maureen@maureenboyle.ie.  *

     

    Family and friends are very welcome
