Poetry Reading!

For our last program before our summer break, we are delighted to host Galway poet Kevin Higgins, as part of his poetry reading tour of New Mexico. (Prior to our meeting on the 8th, he will be appearing in Angel Fire and Taos.) Kevin is co-organizer of Over the Edge literary events in Galway, Ireland. He teaches poetry workshops at Galway Arts Centre, Creative Writing at Galway Technical Institute, and is Creative Writing Director for the NUI Galway Summer School. He has published four collections of poetry with Salmon Poetry, Co. Clare: The Ghost in the Lobby (2014), Frightening New Furniture (2010), Time Gentlemen, Please (2008), and his best-selling first collection, The Boy with No Face (2005), which was shortlisted for the 2006 Strong Award for Best First Collection by an Irish poet. A collection of Kevin’s essays and book reviews, Mentioning the War, was published in 2012.
