9th Annual Irish Arts Center Book Day

Since 2011, Irish Arts Center staff and volunteers have distributed tens of thousands of free books to New Yorkers of all backgrounds. Each St. Patrick’s Day, thanks to our wonderful community of supporters and sponsors, staff and volunteers, we give away thousands of free books by Irish and Irish American authors as well as those of other cultures, including in recent years Mexican (2017) and Caribbean (2018). This year, alongside titles by writers of Irish heritage we share stories by Asian and Asian American authors in a celebration of our different and kindred voices on this special day for the global Irish community.

Get YOUR free book on March 15 at one of our dozen Book Day pop-up stations across all five boroughs, where there will be fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, poetry, and books in translation to choose from.
