Indiana State University’s Cunningham Memorial Library will be host for “A Writer's Salon,” featuring the work of author Eamonn Wall at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the first-floor browsing area.

Wall, born and raised in County Wexford, Ireland, has lived in the United States since 1982. He is the author of essays, articles, poems and stories that have appeared in such publications as The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, Eire-Ireland, TriQuarterly, The Irish Literary Supplement and New Hibernia Review.

His five published books include the poetry collections “Refuge at DeSoto Bend,” (2004); “The Crosses,” (2000); “Iron Mountain Road,” (1997); “Dyckman-200th Street,” (1994); and the narrative on Irish-American writing, “From the Sin-e Café to the Black Hills: Notes on the New Irish,” (2000), winner of the Michael J. Durkan Prize from the American Conference for Irish Studies for excellence in scholarship.

Educated at University College, Dublin; University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; and the City University of New York, Wall is currently Smurfit-Stone professor of Irish studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

The event, co-sponsored by the ISU creative writing committee and the library, is free.
