Poetry Foundation and Poetry Ireland present the first in a series of transatlantic events.

Join us for a reading and conversation with acclaimed Irish poet Doireann Ní Ghríofa and award-winning American poet Teri Ellen Cross Davis, moderated by Erin Fornoff.

This inaugural online event will probe topics of struggle, motherhood, and the complexities of honouring the past while raising the future. Teri and Doireann will discuss the impact these themes have had on their recent work, and with readings from their highly praised collections, will illuminate those places where their approaches and experiences converge and diverge.
