Artizan Street Library Reading Group Met To Discuss – Rabbit run and The Witches Of Eastwick by John Updike

Artizan Street Library Reading Group met to discuss

Rabbit run 

 

It’s 1959 and Harry Rabbit Angstrom, high school sports star turned MagiPeel Kitchen demonstrator, is going nowhere. His only escape is into the arms of his mistress or on a 1000 mile drive, yet this only makes things worse.

and

The Witches of Eastwick

The air of Eastwick breeds witches – women whose powerful longings can stir up thunderstorms and fracture domestic peace. Jane, Alexandra and Sukie, divorced and dangerous, have formed a coven. And into the void of Eastwick breezes Darryl Van Horne, a charismatic magus of a man who entrances the trio.

Irish writers on St. Patrick’s Day

Irish Writers On St. Patrick’s Day

 

Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17th is celebrated  ‘wherever the Green is worn’ around the world by the Irish diaspora. It was emigrants, particularly to the United States who transformed St. Patrick’s day into a largely secular holiday of revelry and celebration of all things Irish. Boston held its first St. Patrick’s Day parade in 1737, followed by New York City in 1762. Since 1962 Chicago has dyed its river green to mark the holiday.

When a pint of Guinness is sunk (probably enough on the day to raise the Titanic) then the stories begin, tales of  Cúchulainn, Tír na nÓg and Crock’s of gold.

Great writers and Ireland go hand in hand, the names trip off the tongue and have kept the pantheon of Irish authors marching to the beat of a Celtic drum. Here are just a few.

“I can resist everything except temptation”  Oscar Wilde 1845 – 1900.
