Along with a full day of programs, there will be information on the 54th Yeats Summer School in County Sligo.

Speakers will include Geraldine Higgins, C.L. Dallat, and Anne-Marie Fyfe, as well as the Spiral Theatre's production of "Gonne/Yeats."  Prof. Geraldine Higgins will also be speaking at Glucksman Ireland House NYU on Thursday, April 3rd: “News that stays New: The Future Life of W.B. Yeats”.
