Dan Milner book talk: The Unstoppable Irish: Songs and Integration of the New York Irish
Dan’s book, "The Unstoppable Irish: Songs and Integration of the New York Irish, 1783-1883," will be published that day by Notre Dame University Press. I have read the book, pre-publication, and it is a brilliant and entertaining musical, cultural, and political history of Irish immigration and assimilation in 19th-century New York City. The talk is likely to be brilliant and entertaining as well. There will be songs, and it’s free.
