WBUR, Boston University’s award-winning National Public Radio station, rebroadcasts the award-winning poet Eavan Boland. Her lecture was  introduced by former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. The event was part of the Robert Lowell Memorial Lecture Series at Boston University.

Hosted by the Creative Writing Program, the Robert Lowell Memorial Lecture Series is a series of high-profile poetry readings celebrating the legacy of the historic Boston University class in which Robert Lowell once taught poets Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and George Starbuck.
