Wearing of the green!

On March 17, almost everyone is Irish.  Take a look at these books on Ireland.

Traveling to Ireland?  Try Fodor’s guides  on the emerald isle.

Researching your family history?  Take a look at ‘ A Genealogist’s guide to discovering your Irish ancestors’, just one of several in the genealogy section.

Maeve Binchy writes of contemporary Ireland.  A  novel by her  is  ‘Heart and Soul,’ the story of family, friends, patients and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community with conflicts between the old and the new in Ireland.

Or try Tana French’s psychological thrillers.  Follow the ‘murder squad’ in Dublin as they work to solve the crime.  The latest is ‘Broken Harbor.’

There are many more books with an Irish theme…just type in ‘Ireland’ in the online catalog and you’ll get a long list of fiction and nonfiction books on Ireland, including St. Patrick.

Erin go braugh!
