This was a wonderful evening with Eamonn Grennan reading from other poets who had influenced him throughout his life. He also read from his own poetry. All of this was accompanied by his view of what a poem might mean. He was very witty and erudite and utterly delightful. Too bad that this was only a one-night affair.
