Three Rooms Press and Mysterious Bookshop present a Night with Eamon Loingsigh with a reading and signing of his new book Exile on Bridge Street.
The event begins at 6:30pm on Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 at the Mysterious Bookshop at 58 Warren Street, New York, NY 1007
Exile on Bridge Street is the second installment of Loingsigh’s Auld Irishtown trilogy, and follows teenage Irish immigrant Liam Garrity as he struggles to survive the violent and dark world of 1916 Brooklyn. Loingsigh relates Liam’s compelling personal story against a background of New York City’s brawling streets, Brooklyn Irish waterfront gangs, an influenza epidemic, Italian organized crime, and the start of America’s involvement in World War I. Written by a master of historical fiction, the story leaves you breathless and gives readers a glimpse into a forgotten past.
Irish Central hailed the work as “the quintessential read for 21st century Brooklyn” and Terry Golway, author of Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American politics praised Loingsigh as “a skilled novelist [who] can bring to life people and places forgotten by history.
Copies of Exile on Bridge Street will be available at the venue for purchase and signing.
This is a free event.
