Press Release “We Were Rich and Didn’t Know It”
Join us at the Westfield Athenaeum on Wednesday, July 10th at 6:30 pm in the Lang Auditorium for an evening with Tom Phelan, author of “We Were Rich and Didn’t Know It”. An engrossing memoir about growing up on a small farm in Mountmellick, Co. Laois, Ireland, Phelan tells of a time before rural electrification, the telephone, and indoor plumbing; when the main modes of travel were bicycle and animal cart; turkey eggs were hatched in the kitchen cupboard and the Church exerted enormous control over Ireland.
