To launch No Word for ‘Stay’, the 11th curation of Poetry Jukebox, join Centre Culturel Irlandais and Quotidian – Word on the Street for a dynamic in-depth discussion about Northern Ireland, its poets and the lived-experience of the Troubles.

The panel discussion is chaired by Professor of Irish Poetry at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris, Clíona Ní Ríordáin.
