Marie Howe: Reading & Drinks Reception


It’s an honour to welcome the acclaimed American Poet Marie Howe to Belfast!  

New and Selected Poems (W.W. Norton, 2024 and Bloodaxe Books, 2024) sees the cohering of almost four decades of significant work by one of the best loved poets of the English-speaking world. 

Mingling religion, the ordinary, the environment and how we might possibly connect with other human beings Marie’s poetry reminds us of the miraculous in everyday life. 

Join us for a special reading, followed by a reception.


Marie Howe is the author of New and Selected Poems (W.W. Norton, April 2024) which includes poems from four volumes of poetry: Magdalene: Poems (W.W. Norton, 2017); The Kingdom of Ordinary Time (W.W. Norton, 2009); What the Living Do (1997); and The Good Thief (1988). She is also the co-editor of a book of essays, In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS Pandemic (1994). 

From 2012-2014, she served as the Poet Laureate of New York State. She is the Poet in Residence at The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, and a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets.
