Author Patrick Taylor at the Carroll Gardens Library Feb. 29, 2012
Leap Day, February 29, happens just once every four years. Rarer still is a Brooklyn appearance by New York Times bestselling Irish author Patrick Taylor, but the stars must be properly aligned because Patrick Taylor will be reading from and signing his latest in the "Irish Country" series, A Dublin Student Doctor, at the Carroll Gardens Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library on February 29, 2012 at 7:00 p.m!
Here's what's said about the "Irish Country" novels:
“Taylor…is a bang-up storyteller who captivates and entertains from the first word.”
--Publishers Weekly on An Irish Country Girl
“The cozy village of Ballybucklebo and its eccentric inhabitants make the holidays bright.”
--Library Journal on An Irish Country Christmas
“ Full of stories and vivid characters, [An Irish Country Village] recalls a good night in a pub.”
Taylor was born and raised in Bangor County Down in Northern Ireland. He now lives in Saltspring Island, British Columbia. For more information about the author, please visit his site at www.PatrickTaylor.ca. Listen to some of Patrick's readings here.
Due to the anticipated popularity of this event, it is strongly encouraged that you reserve tickets now through Eventbrite. LIMIT 4 TICKETS PER PERSON. Suggested donation at the door is $10 per person. Patrick Taylor's novels will be available for purchase at the event, and some may be available at the branch for check-out.
