EVERYTHING IRISH! October 17
Book Discussion of The Banshee of the MacCarthys by T. Crofton Croker
Another perfect fit for Halloween! We have copies of the short story at the Adult Services Desk. Pick up a copy and settle in for a discussion with a cup of tea and biscuits.
The Irish are known for their love of ghost stories, fairy tales and belief in the supernatural.This is a short story which presents all the elements of a great ghost story.
"T. Crofton Croker spent several years in the early 1800s roaming Ireland and collecting stories from ordinary people, especially in the south of Ireland. I picked this story because I enjoy tales from Ireland and it presents an interesting overview of life and customs during the early 19th century. "
