A citywide celebration of Irish literature

Monday, March 17 | 7 am until the books run out!

From The Bronx to Staten Island, Manhattan’s Upper West Side to Brighton Beach, and stops in between, the Irish Arts Center will celebrate St Patrick’s Day by giving New Yorkers the gift of free Irish literature.

For our fourth annual Book Day, volunteers across the city will be handing out thousands of books to commuters and school children at transit hubs across all five New York City boroughs.

Get involved!
For book donation and sponsorship opportunities promoting this day of literacy and Irish culture, contact Rachael Gilkey at rachael@irishartscenter.org.

Irish Arts Center Book Day is inspired by a similar event run by Solas Nua in Washington D.C. since 2006.
