Welcome to Pints and Prose, an Irish book club! Every month, we will read a book by an Irish author, or a book of Irish history. We meet at the Irish Cottage on 72nd Avenue in Forest Hills for pints of Guinness (or whatever you prefer) and a chat about the book…which usually diverges into something else eventually. It’s great cráic.
