The Irish / British Genealogy Group Message Board › Colm Toibin & Mick Moloney @ Brooklyn Historical Society, Sunday, April
Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) partners with "The New York Review of Books" for "Talking Fiction, Talking Fact," a programming series that pairs notable fiction writers with scholars who have written on similar topics for engaging and thought-provoking dialogue.
This month, BHS is hosting Colm Tóibín, author of the novel Brooklyn, whose protagonist Eilis Lacey travels from Ireland to Brooklyn in the early 1950's, and Mick Moloney, Irish folklorist and musician. This event is free with museum admission, which is $6.00 for adults.
The BHS is on Pierrepont Street, at the corner of Clinton Street, in Brooklyn Heights, and is easily reached by the 2, 3, 4, 5, R and A trains, which all stop nearby. Check subway listings for weekend service disruptions.
