Katie is a first year student in the English MA program. In March, she was invited to read Irish poetry for an event at the JFK Library, "An Evening with Irish Tenor Anthony Kearns."

This exciting event was put on by the JFK in conjunction with the university, serving as a celebration of Irish music and heritage as well as a celebration of the two institutions and their relationship.
