The Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry at Glucksman Ireland House honors Tom, a public school teacher in Philadelphia, a lover of poetry, and Glucksman Ireland House member since 1997; the lecture is endowed by his family. We are especially pleased that the Quinlan Lecture is offered in partnership with the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queens University, Belfast. The Seamus Heaney Prize for poetry is awarded annually by the Heaney Centre to the author of the best first book of poems published in Ireland or Britain. The prizewinner is determined by a committee of faculty from the Heaney Centre, including the Director, Ciaran Carson, as well the annual holder of the Ireland Chair in Poetry.

 

The 2013 winner of the Heaney Prize is Sarah Jackson, for her collection Pelt, a remarkable collection of lyric poems that meditate on unseen influences, fleeting insights, patterns of meaning and shapes of time.

Introduction by Nick Laird, Northern Irish poet and novelist .

Free admission.
