Husband and wife team Sam and Joan McCready will give a performance, "Songs of Wandering Aengus" at noon on Wednesday, March 14, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
The McCreadys give an entertaining and informative account of W.B. Yeats's relationships with women. With the use of Yeats's poems, plays, journals, letters, and their own written narrative, they look at his complex relationships with women and how he wove those often tortuous relationships into his major writings.
