IRISH YOU WERE HERE: MUSINGS AND MEMORIES OF AN AMERICAN EXPATRIATE IN ERIN By Anne Driscoll
May 9, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$15.00
Since 2013, Anne Driscoll has spent the better part of each year in Ireland. W from the beginning, she was charmed and beguiled by a country that loves stories, celebrates characters, and believes conversation is a currency more valuable than money. Writer, educator, social activist and recipient of the 2016 Salem Award, Ms. Driscoll is back on the North Shore for a brief visit. She will stop by to share some of her favorite personal Irish experiences, including rowing currachs down the Liffey, visiting 1200 year old monasteries and 12th century pubs, and even covering a traditional singles’ matchmaking festival for the Boston Globe. Hers is an Ireland you won’t read about in tour guides, and it’s one you won’t soon forget.
