Meet Peter Quinn, author of LOOKING FOR JIMMY and BANISHED CHILDREN OF EVE, at Upcoming NY Area Events

Join Peter Quinn and a stellar cast of Irish American writers and artists next week in New York for an evening in tribute to Danny Cassidy, Irish-American musician, teacher, labor activist and author of How the Irish Invented Slang. The event will be held on Thursday, September 25, 7pm, at The Donaghy Theatre in Manhattan.

Peter Quinn will also give four New York area readings this Fall in support of the paperback release of Banished Children of Eve, his acclaimed novel of Civil War New York. The author will appear at the beloved Rocky Sullivan's in Brooklyn on October 8, Glucksman Ireland House on October 9, Lower East Side Tenement Museum on October 16, and Garden City Library on Long Island on November 11. And the best part is: Quinn promises to buy Jameson for anyone who whispers "Winged Elephant" in his ear at any of these events!
