A free, public evening of poetry and music to commemorate the Easter Rising Irish rebellion of 1916.
Ireland's Easter Rising was preceded by a cultural revolution in which The Abbey Theatre was founded "to bring upon the stage the deeper emotions of Ireland." The rebellion itself was led by a group that included many poets. On the centenary of the Rising, in which New York played an important role, the Poetry Society of America presents an extraordinary evening of Irish and American poetry and music.
Located in The Great Hall, in the Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues
