I have several loves in life. Like bacon and coffee. But what you might not know is that I also love books. As a matter of fact, I’ve probably got enough books to start a small library. I’m also Irish and so when I saw something about books and Irish stories, I knew I had to find out what it was all about.

The Hungry Ear is the monthly library program that celebrates the art of the short story and it’s bringing a touch of the Irish to its reading on Monday, March 31st at 5:30pm at the Broome County Public Library.

“Ten Pint Ted” is a book by Ian Wild and is about a young man and his puppet. This book will be read by Chris Nickerson. Kate Murrary will also tell a tale from “The Mammy” by Brendan O’Carroll about a lad who is beginning to notice the colleens.

If you’d like to be transported to the Emerald Isle for an hour or so, you won’t want to miss this free program which is open to the public.
