Fall 2020 - Jan 2021 Book Discussion Series
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:
- October: BLACK POTATOES (the Story of the Great Irish Famine, 1845-1850), by Susan Campbell Bartoletti. This discussion is over, here are the questions used during the meeting.
- November: THE IRISH BRIDGET (Irish Immigrant Women in Domestic Service in America, 1840–1930) by Margaret Lynch-Brennan. Questions used during our discussion are here.
- December - January: 97 ORCHARD (An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement) by Jane Ziegelman.
The next discussion is on January 19, 2021.
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.
