Magherafelt Library, working in partnership with Seamus Heaney HomePlace in Bellaghy, is excited to announce an exhibition showcasing a collection of Seamus Heaney archived materials curated over more than four decades by Mr Pat Brennan.
The bespoke exhibition, titled 'Nostalgia in the Afternoon' - From Gorgon to the New Yorker, will be on display from Wednesday 1 March until Tuesday 21 March 2023 in Magherafelt Library and includes a presentation of a range of magazines that Seamus Heaney contributed to from the earliest stages of his writing career, dating back to 1959.
From his days as a student at Queen's University Belfast, Seamus Heaney contributed to a wide range of magazines and periodicals. Over the years the level of these contributions grew and were often used as a sounding board for early drafts of poems which were either kept 'as is' for collections, revised or indeed in some cases, never used again.
To close the exhibition and to mark World Poetry Day, Mr Pat Brennan (exhibition curator) will deliver a talk in the library from 6:00pm until 7:00pm on Tuesday 21 March, providing an opportunity to ask Pat directly about this fascinating collection.
This event is taking place as part of the Mid Ulster Arts Festival.
