Seamus Heaney to read at Emory | Arts & Culture
ATLANTA -- Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney will give a free reading at Emory University next month.
Heaney will read on Saturday, Mar. 2 at 2 p.m. in the school's Glenn Auditorium.
Tickets will be available beginning Wednesday and can be picked up at a number of locations, including Emory's Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts box office, A Cappella Books in Inman Park, Charis Books and More in Little Five Points, and two Decatur bookstores -- Eagle Eye Bookshop and Little Shop of Stories.
Emory's Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library acquired several of Heaney's papers in 2003. The materials will be part of a major exhibition in spring 2014.
Heaney, who is enormously popular in both the U.S. and his native Ireland, won the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature and also received the 2012 Lifetime Recognition Award from the Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry.
