Book Discussion Series
The book discussion club continues to turn pages. On its agenda are these stories of Irish interest:
97 ORCHARD (An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement) by Jane Ziegelman. Its discussion is set for January 19.
Giant's Causeway: Frederick Douglass's Odyssey and the Making of an American Visionary, by Tom Chaffin. This book chronicles the former slave's visit to Ireland, and how experiences there helped him hone habits of independence, discretion, compromise, self-reliance, and political dexterity. Discussion occurs on February 16.
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.
