Description

Named for a Philadelphia educator with a life-long love of poetry, the sixth annual Tom Quinlan Lecture will feature a reading by the 2017 winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize, Belfast-born Adam Crothers (Several Deer), with an introduction by the Quinlan family and Nick Laird.

Adam Crothers was born in Belfast in 1984, and works in a library in Cambridge. His first collection, Several Deer, was published by Carcanet in 2016, and won the 2017 Shine/Strong Poetry Award and the 2017 Seamus Heaney Centre Prize. He has appeared in the anthologies New Poetries VI (Carcanet, 2015) and The Future Always Makes Me So Thirsty: New Poets from the North of Ireland (Blackstaff, 2016), and in 2016 he was selected as one of Poetry Ireland Review's 'Rising Generation' poets.
