Fri. March 17th: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!  Ireland gave us some of the greatest writers in the English language: poet William Butler Yeats, novelists James Joyce and Iris Murdoch, and playwrights Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, Sean O’Casey and J.M. Synge.  Contemporary Irish-born writers include novelists John Banville, Maeve Binchy, Anne Enright, Edna O’Brien, Joseph O’Connor, William Trevor and poet Seamus Heaney.  We have works by most of these authors in the Library, as well as the films “The Banshees of Inisherin” (2022) with Colin Farrell, and director John Sayles’ “The Secret of Roan Inish” on DVD.  Come check them out!
