On Friday, October 7th, Three Rooms Press and Cornelia Street Cafe is thrilled to present the official New York City Launch of Eamon Loingsigh’s anticipated novel, Exile on Bridge Street.
Join author, Eamon Loingsigh, and special guest Kathleen Donohoe (Ashes of Fiery Weather) for a reading and signing of the latest installment of the Auld Irishtown trilogy, Exile on Bridge Street.
Loingsigh takes readers on a fast-paced adventure through time, blending the beauty and grit of New York with the violent and turbulent reality of Irish immigrants that came searching for a better life, only to find a new war of their own. Follow the story of Liam Garrity as he fights to survive in pre-Prohibition Brooklyn, where violence can erupt at any time and everything is at stake.
“In Exile on Bridge Street, Eamon Loingsigh recreates the forgotten world of Irish Immigrant New York with a combination of accuracy and drama found only in the best historical fiction”- Tyler Anbinder, professor of history, George Washington University, and author of Five Points.
The event will take place at 6pm at the Cornelia Street Cafe at 29 Cornelia Street, West Village, NY (between Bleeker and W. 4th). Doors open at 5:45pm.
Admission is $10 and includes a free drink.
Copies of Exile on Bridge Street will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
