5 Irish Authors (and their books) to Check Out This St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! 🍀

I am not Irish (that I know of) but like many of you I enjoy celebrating this holiday! Such a fun time and who would turn down an excuse to wear all our bright green clothes and head to the bar and drink green drinks?!? Always a fab time!

I wanted to take some time to mention a few amazing Irish authors and give them the recognition they deserve 🙂 When I was looking for Irish authors I was super surprised to find some really popular authors are Irish! Who knew??

I think it is so cool that people stick with their heritage. My family is very much “Canadian” which means we have lost our heritage and history. All I know about my family history is that we are from England, Scotland, Germany, and possibly Sweden! Quite the range there haha! I love being Canadian and when I say that I am Canadian I say it with the same joy as people who say they are Italian or Irish or French or whatever background they may have! I just think that sometimes Canada doesn’t really have much of a “culture” per say and that being Canadian doesn’t come with many deep rooted traditions and practices. However, that is fine with me because I love where I come from and am proud just like everyone should be of their home 🙂 rant over!
