    Grennan has published over twenty books of verse, along with translations and a collection of essays about modern Irish poetry. Hie most recent is There Now was released in July 2015. His works have won the PEN Award for Poetry in Translation for Leopardi: Selected Poems (1997), the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize from the Academy of American Poets for Still Life with Waterfall (2002),and Pushcart Prizes. His collection Out of Breath (2007) was nominated for the 2008 Poetry Now Award and he was a finalist for both the LA Times Book Prize for What Light There Is and Other Poems (1989) and So It Goes (1995) for the Paterson Poetry Prize.
   Grennan follows other great Irish authors who have come to Howard County, including Frank McCourt, Eavan Boland, Hugo Hamilton, Paula Meehan, Colm Tóibín, Anne Enright, Colum McCann, and Emma Donoghue, to name a few.  For years, HoCoPoLitSo's Irish Evening has recognized and celebrated the enormous impact of Irish-born writers on the world of contemporary literature.
