DURHAM, N.H. -- Award-winning Irish poet Micheal O'Siadhail will share the elegance of his poetry during a reading Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2002. The event, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, will be held at 7 p.m., in the Dimond Library, Level 5 Reading Room.

"O'Siadhail's poems are about the ebb and flow of modern life, cold sidewalks and warm hearts: strangers on a train... old friends and lovers," writes Liane Hansen NPR's All Things Considered.

A native of Ireland, Micheal O'Siadhail has published 10 collections of poetry. He was awarded an Irish American Cultural Institute prize for poetry in 1982 and in 1998 the Marten Toonder prize for literature. Three of his books of poetry, Our Double Time, Poems 1975-1995 and The Gossamer Wall, will be available for purchase at the poetry reading.
