MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW

Support Literacy and GetLit on St. Patrick’s Day

Support Literacy and GetLit on St. Patrick’s Day
Throughout March, the media is telling Irish stories and our children are listening and watching. How are we telling our story? What image are we projecting to the rest of the world on St. Patrick’s Day? With four Nobel Prizes in Literature, great songwriters, poets, dramatists, novelists, screen-writers, comedy writers and the gift of the gab… there is so much to celebrate about Ireland and the Irish.


Since 2011, Irish Arts Center staff and volunteers have distributed tens of thousands of free books to New Yorkers of all backgrounds every St. Patrick’s Day. On March 17, 2018, we once again take to the streets across all five boroughs, this year armed with literature by Irish, Caribbean and American authors, to share one of the great legacies that bridge these diverse cultures—their stories.

Get YOUR free book at one of our dozen Book Day pop-up stands across the five boroughs. Locations and times will be announced soon: watch this space for updates, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook (#IACBookDay).

“Promote a positive message about Ireland and the Irish thought our literary greats this St. Patrick’s Day. We have so many storytellers to celebrate and I hope you will join us.”—Liam Neeson
