Main Description
Seamus Heaney will turn 70 years old on 13 April 2009. To recognize and celebrate this event, Ireland's public service braodcaster RTE, supported by a Lannan Foundation grant, has recorded Heaney reading his entire body of work. These recordings, available in both CD and MP3 formats, are distributed by Faber and Faber in Great Britain in association with RTE (who will also broadcast the recording in Ireland for 24 hours on the birthday itself). This is the only such complete record of Heaney's work.
