CUNY Graduate Center

365 Fifth Avenue, Room 9207

Irish-American Book Club.  Professor Janet Butler Munch will lead a discussion and conversation with Maura Mulligan, author of The Call of the Lark. 

Reviewers are saying:  “A beautifully drawn and evocative memoir full of rich detail. Call of the Lark perfectly captures the unique atmosphere of rural Mayo. A wonderful read, and a great historical resource.” – Kate Kerrigan, author of ELLIS ISLAND  

"CALL OF THE LARK gives the reader that rare gift that only truly imaginative writing can bestow: the sense of having stepped live into another world.  A remarkable memoir.” –Kathleen Hill, author of WHO OCCUPIES THIS HOUSE and STILL WATERS IN NIGER.

“Maura Mulligan opens a dusty window on a number of worlds.  In clear, luminous prose she tells a dry-eyed story of redemption that lifts both the heart and soul.  An essential, revealing chapter in the Irish-American story.”– Larry Kirwan, author of GREEN SUEDE SHOES and ROCKIN’ THE BRONX

This lecture is free and open to the public; in order to arrange seating, RSVP:  718-960-6722,  deirdre.oboy@lehman.cuny.edu .  Thank you.
