The Historical Society of Pennsylvania is focusing on the Irish American experience this month and is organizing a series of events exploring Irish American identity.

The main event is a special lecture on Irish immigration to the United States in the 19th century, and will feature our favorite academic, Bill Watson of the Duffy's Cut Project.

The program is free and open to the public.

The HSP will also be selling copies of their journal Legacies, that features an article by yours truly. So if you do happen to pick up a copy, please drop me a line and let me know what you think.
