  • The March Book Club Reads about Famous Irish Writers!

    Tuesday, March 22, 2022, 7-9 pm: The Writing Irish of New York edited by Colin Broderick, available in paperback; 330 pp.; independently published Oct. 19, 2021. In the ten years following the Great Famine, Irish flooded into New York at an astonishing rate. By 1860 one in every four New Yorkers was Irish, and by the 1920s Irish-American authors like Eugene O’Neill and F. Scott Fitzgerald had transformed the American literary landscape and laid the foundation for a century that would put Irish writing at the forefront of American letters. This series of essays by and about Irish-American writers traces that heritage from its humble origins through the twentieth century. Editor Colin Broderick provides background essays on Brendan Behan’s New York, Maeve Brennan’s heartbreaking decent into madness, Frank McCourt’s rise from school teacher to literary phenomenon, and 23 of today’s top Irish-American authors provide personal accounts of how they found their voices in the Big Apple. Taken together, the stories provide a vivid portrait of a community of authors who continue to fight for Ireland’s place at the top of literary canon.

    *PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MARCH DATE IS THE 4TH TUESDAY TO AVOID ST. PATRICK’S WEEK!

  • The May Book Club is featuring The Paper Bracelet!

    Tuesday, May 17, 2022, 7-9 pm: The Paper Bracelet by Racheal English, ©2020, 420 pages. This novel was inspired by heartrending true events in a home for unwed mothers and is set in Ireland, Boston and London. For almost fifty years, Katie Carroll has kept a box tucked away inside her wardrobe. It dates from her time working as a nurse in a west of Ireland home for unwed mothers in the 1970s. The box contains a notebook holding the details of the babies and young women she met there. It also holds many of the babies’ identity bracelets. Following the death of her husband, Katie makes a decision. The information she possesses could help reunite adopted people with their birth mothers, and she decides to post a message on an internet forum. Soon the replies are rolling in, and Katie finds herself returning many of the bracelets to their original owners. She encounters success and failure, heartbreak and joy. But is she prepared for old secrets to be uncovered in her own life?
