Coming in September, the McClelland Library is excited to show two movies featuring vastly different accounts of the Irish-American immigration experience in the 19th century. 9/8/2023 – “Far and Away” 9/29/2023 – “Gangs of New York” Following each film, speakers will discuss the diaspora experience presented by each. Following Gangs of New York, the discussion will also compare both films.
Our Family Story Hour program introduces parents and children to Irish authors, stories and traditions in a fun and interactive fashion. We will continue to read 2 books! We will include songs and activities, plus a fun Irish based craft to take home! Story Hour is suitable for all ages and will last approximately 1 hour. Hope to see you there!
