Immaculata’s Irish Studies Program Announces Reading and Book Signing

The Irish Studies Program at Immaculata University will sponsor a reading and book signing by Juilene Osborne-McKnight, Irish storyteller and teacher, on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 7:30 p.m., in Room 127 Loyola Hall on the university campus.
With the spring 2006 release of her fourth novel Song of Ireland, Ms. Osborne-McKnight has completed her retelling of Irish folktales and history, and Publisher´s Weekly called her newest work "a sure winner among Irish history buffs and fans of rich, multilayered fantasy." The author is a traditional storyteller and, in that capacity, she has appeared at colleges and universities across the United States. She returns to Immaculata to speak about her novels and to sign copies of her most recent title.
Osborne-McKnight earned an MFA in Writing at the sister colleges of St. Patrick in Carlow, Ireland and Carlow University in Pittsburgh. She speaks Irish Gaelic and teaches Celtic and Native American myth, as well as fiction writing, at De Sales University.
Her appearance at Immaculata is open to all. No reservations needed and there is no fee. Copies of Song of Ireland will be available for purchase at the event. For further information, contact Sister Marie Hubert Kealy, IHM, at 610-647-4400, ext. 3720 or mkealy@immaculata.edu.
Immaculata University, a Catholic, coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
