MARY PAT KELLY TO VISIT

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21; 2 PM
MARY PAT KELLY,
author of Galway Bay, will introduce Of Irish Blood, a vivid and compelling tale woven with authentic detail and historical characters, and based on the author's own great aunt's life. Irish Nora Kelly is thriving in the new land and early twentieth century Chicago, rising in the fashion industry until she gets involved with the wrong sort of man and flees to Paris to escape trouble. There she finds friends in such luminaries as Gertrude Stein and Sylvia Beach. But she also meets a group of Irish revolutionaries who challenge her to honor her heritage and join the fight to free Ireland. Nora faces betrayal and violence, but her greatest heartache is wondering if she will ever find her way home again.

Mary Higgins Clark says this about the book: "Fascinating story. Engrossing with an endearing central character and a wonderful rich historical background."
