The Unsung Yeats Sisters

The Yeats Sisters; two of literature’s most important patrons, have been largely unknown until recently. More than 50 years after their deaths; Lily and Lolly, sisters of poet William Butler Yeats and painter Jack, were extraordinary women and supported W.B. Yeats financially, and personally published the first editions of his books of poetry. Learn more about these remarkable sisters in a multimedia lecture at Irish Fest.

The Unsung Yeats Sisters is Sunday, July 8 from 2:30pm-3pm in the Library.
