40th Annual Irish Evening of Music and Poetry featuring Mike McCormack

HoCoPoLitSo’s fortieth annual Irish celebration will feature a reading by award-winning writer Mike McCormack.  Hosted by Irish Evening Chair Catherine McLoughlin-Hayes, the evening also showcases new and traditional Irish music by Narrowbacks and Irish step dancing. McCormack's newest novel, Solar Bones, is longlisted for the 2017 Man Booker Prize. The Guardian's review of Solar Bones was subtitled, “an extraordinary hymn to small-town Ireland.” A Kirkus starred review noted “For all his high artistic aims, McCormack is a wonderfully accessible, quick-witted writer … and a smartly contemporary one.” Scones, beer, cocktails, Irish coffee, book sales and signing round out the night
