Kevin Holohan & Honor Molloy read funny bits from their novels
Sunday – March 18th – 1:30 – 2:30 pm at the Brooklyn Public Library

What is this now?
Did you know many people experience what is called post-patrician perdition.
They do now? And what class of affliction would this be?
They don’t know what to do with themselves the day after Patrick’s Day when it falls on a weekend.

And your solution to this is?
Reading out loud.
Is it, now? I assume you are talking of books. Where?
Central Library, Brooklyn.
When?
Sunday March 18 at 1:30pm
And?
On the other side of St. Patrick’s Day, when the green-tinted beer has gone flat and the strains of puzzling bagpipe music have died away, you can get a taste of an Ireland that is a little more riverrun than Riverdance, more Pogues than Clancy Brothers. Please come along to the Dweck Center of the Brooklyn Central Library on Sunday March 18 at 1:30pm 10 Grand Army Plaza Brooklyn, NY 11238 718-230-2100 where I will read from The Brothers’ Lot alongside Honor Molloy who will be reading from her terrific debut novel, Smarty Girl.
Is there a website to back this up?

And what does the Brooklyn Library have to say about all this?
Double Dublin: Join Kevin Holohan and Honor Molloy for an afternoon of Irish comic writing. Holohan reads from The Brothers’ Lot, a satirical and hilarious novel that explores religious hypocrisy in an Irish secondary school. Molloy reads from Smarty Girl – Dublin Savage, a wild child’s struggle to hold her family together in 1960s Dublin.
I have to see a man in about a dog in Bay Ridge but I’ll try to make it.
Fair enough.
