Weekly Lunch With Books From the Vault Now Offered Every Tuesday

Lunch With Books From the VaultOCPL PRESS RELEASE - MARCH 17, 2020:

From OCPL Adult Programming Director, Sean Duffy:

"It broke my heart that we were not able to perform 'A History of Ireland in Song and Poetry' for you today to honor St. Pat with the beautiful vocals of my cousin Michelle Duffy, the music of Faire May, some great poetry readers, and narration written by yours truly. We all worked very hard on it, and we promise to do everything we can to bring that program to you at a future date, when the world is safe again.

"Meanwhile, back in 2016, we did a similar program in honor of the centennial of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. My cousin Derrick McKee provided the music, and readers included Patrick Cassidy, Bill Hogan, Peg Brennan, and the late great Hal O'Leary.

"The program was captured on video by our friend Yodeling Dick Brooks. So please enjoy, digitally and safely (thanks to the efforts of my colleague Erin Rothenbuehler) for St. Patrick's Day, 'The Irish Easter Rising In Poetry & Song, 1916-2016, Céad Bliain ( 100 Years).'"

~Sean Duffy
