An Evening with Pulitzer Prize winning Irish Poet Paul Muldoon; his band, The Wayside Shrines.

Described by The Times Literary Supplement as "the most significant English-language poet born since the second World War," the Pulitzer Prize winning, self-described “prince of the quotidian,” Paul Muldoon, writes poems filled with meaty unpronounceables and querulous urgencies (about Ulster gangsters, suburban New Jersey, and Warren Zevon). He has published thirty collections, including the recent Maggot, a raucous mix of rot and the erotic that led one critic to label it a “thrilling, wild, fairground ride, with few let-ups for the squeamish.” Late of Oxford (where he was Poetry Chair), Muldoon now lives in the United States, where he is a professor at Princeton University; Chair of the Peter B. Lewis Center for the Arts; and Poetry Editor of The New Yorker.

Reading and performing with his band, The Wayside Shrines, Muldoon will also participate in an on stage conversation, an audience Q&A, and a lobby meet and greet.
