On February 27th, NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House presented Paul Muldoon with the Seamus Heaney Award for Arts & Letters. The event took place at NYU's Kimmel Center for University Life. The award was presented by Marie Heaney, writer and the wife of late poet Seamus Heaney.
The Seamus Heaney Award for Arts & Letters is awarded in memory of the late Nobel Laureate who was an honored guest at the 2013 Glucksman Ireland House Gala and a great champion of its dynamic program of activities. Glucksman Ireland House is celebrating their 25th anniversary with programming focusing on Irish-Jewish themes. This theme pays tribute to Loretta Brennan Glucksman and the late Lewis L. Glucksman, who believed in the universality of the ethnic and immigrant experience and creating dialogue between immigrants of different backgrounds.
