Four Way Books Seminar: Seamus Heaney’s The Spirit Level

When: October 15, 2017 @ 1pm – 4pm
Where: Puffy’s Tavern, 81 Hudson St, New York, NY 10013
Cost: $95

We usually think about the college student’s budget when posting events, but this one is worth attending if you have some extra spending money for an afternoon of poetry and good conversation.

Four Way Books is hosting a seminar on Seamus Heaney‘s The Spirit Level (it is recommended that you read the book before attending the event). Heaney was regarded as one of the world’s best poets when he passed away in 2013. He was the author of twelve individual poetry collections, as well as selected volumes, translations, plays, and four collections of prose. In this seminar, attendees “will look closely at the artfulness of individual poems.” The event “will not be a lecture on one of Heaney’s signature books, but an interactive conversation about the work and what it can teach us about the art of poetry.”

Cost: Free, Open to the Public

Deirdre Bair was a newly minted PhD who thought she would write a critical study of Samuel Beckett. One thing led to another, and she – who had never read a biography – suddenly found herself writing one. Her talk will describe the privilege (and the trials and tribulations) of working with two living subjects. It will include her coming-of-age as a scholar and feminist, and why now is the right time to tell these stories.

Bair is the critically acclaimed author of award winning biographies: Samuel Beckett, Simone de Beauvoir, Anais Nin, C. G. Jung, Saul Steinberg and Al Capone. She is also the author of the cultural study Calling it Quits: Late-Life Divorce and Starting Over. Her innumerable, prestigious prizes include the National Book Award for Samuel Beckett. Bair also serves on Pace University’s M.S. in Publishing Advisory Board.
