Northern Irish Poet Sinead Morrissey reads at UConn as the 2016 Gerson Irish Literature Reader

In addition to UConn’s brilliant showing at ACIS 2016, we played host on the evening of April 5 to Northern Irish poet Sinead Morrissey as the Gerson Irish Literature Reader for 2016. The reading, which took place at the William Benton Museum, was a rousing success, and it was featured in UConn’s Daily Campus, in an article written by staff writer Edward Pankowski.
