CANCELED: 10th Annual St. Patrick’s Citywide Book Day

Tue Mar 17, 2020
8:00am to 6:00pm

The Irish Arts Center undertakes the 10th annual edition of one of its most beloved programs: Book Day, in which the Center pays homage to Ireland’s rich literary tradition by giving the public free books by some of the country’s—and Irish America’s—most celebrated writers.

With hundreds of titles to choose from ranging from children’s books to poetry, and fiction, nonfiction and translated books, there is something for every New Yorker at one of the many pop-up stands IAC will set up across all five boroughs.
