The President & The Poet – An Evening of Poetry with Micheal O’Siadhail
Start Date: 10/16/2017Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 10/16/2017End Time: 9:00 PM
Event Description:
Please join University of Manitoba President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. David T. Barnard for an evening of poetry reading, dialogue, and book signing with renowned Irish poet Micheal O’Siadhail. O’Siadhail’s poetry is richly personal – covering marriage, friendship, vocation, joy and grief – but also engages with broader elements of culture and society – music, language, city life and the dynamics of history. While his roots are Irish, O’Siadhail’s scope is global. His recent work, Collected Poems, draws on his past thirteen collections of work, and his magnum opus, The Five Quintets, is forthcoming from Baylor University Press in the summer of 2018.

Books will be available for purchase and signing with Micheal O’Siadhail. 

Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no cost for this event, however space is limited. Please RSVP to or by calling 204-474-9071 and request a parking pass for N lot with your RSVP.

Location: 204 Marshall McLuhan Hall, UMSU University Centre
