Green Reading…

Today is St. Patrick’s Day, the day that many Americans recognize and celebrate the many contributions of the Irish to our nation’s history and culture. We tend to wear green, go to parades and festivals for some craic (“fun” in modern Irish), and perhaps drink a green beverage or two——but have you ever read a novel by an Irish author? This month at the Brown Library, we decided to highlight some of the wonderful writers of the Emerald Isle, including:

  • James Joyce
  • George Bernard Shaw
  • Maeve Binchy
  • Edna O’Brien
  • W.B. Yeats and more

The Irish are known for good storytelling, so come on by today to see our Irish-themed displays and check out a wee book or two!
