2.) At 11:30 a.m., on Wednesday,
11 July 2012, I will present scenes
from my poetic drama “The Prairie Gaeltacht.”
The play is based on stories and descriptions
of three of my grandparents, who were children
in several Irish-speaking Utopian Colonies
created in a desolate region of the western
prairies of Minnesota in the 1870s-1880s.
After a presentation of these scenes, there
will be a discussion between myself, Dr. Bridget
Connelly, Máire Ní Chatháin, and other descendants
of these Irish Colonists. http://seamascain-writernetwork.org/photo3.html
