Fall 2020 Book Discussion Group
Just because we can't hold dance classes doesn't mean we can't be active in other ways. A book discussion club has been formed. On its agenda are three stories of Irish interest:
- BLACK POTATOES (the Story of the Great Irish Famine, 1845-1850), by Susan Campbell Bartoletti
- THE IRISH BRIDGET (Irish Immigrant Women in Domestic Service in America, 1840–1930) by Margaret Lynch-Brennan
- 97 ORCHARD (An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement) by Jane Ziegelman
The dances we practice are selected from popular MD-DC-VA ceili and set dance group lists as well as other sources. Learn more about us.
