St. Patricks Day

“Top O’ the Morning!” Although not an official U.S. Holiday, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with parties, parades, and general goodwill for all things Irish. The day commemorates St. Patrick, who introduced Christianity to Ireland in the fifth century. Many Americans celebrate their Irish lineage on St. Patrick’s Day and March has been picked as Irish-American Heritage Month. In recognition, our website will feature a list of Irish fiction titles. Also, we have the book “Everything Irish”,  a lively one-volume encyclopedia that has over 900 entries about everything Irish, from ancient myths to pivotal historic events, from heroes and terrorists, to poets and politicians. There are black and white photos throughout this wonderful book.
