ATLANTA (AP) - Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney is set to do a public reading at Emory University.
The celebrated Irish poet is scheduled to read at the school's Glenn Auditorium on March 2. The reading is free, but tickets are required because seating is limited.
Heaney will also be visiting his collection at Emory. The school's manuscript, archives and rare book library in 2003 acquired a large portion of Heaney's papers, including manuscripts, photos, recordings of readings and lectures, and personal and literary correspondence. The collection is to be featured in a major exhibition in spring 2014.
Heaney won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995. He recently received the Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry's 2012 Lifetime Recognition Award.
