Michael McCarthy will be launching his new book, The Children of Michigan Street on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Wilson Formal Lounge on the St. John Fisher College campus. The public is invited to this meet and greet, book-signing event.
This book is Mike’s third historical novel about a first generation Irish-American growing up in the Western New York town of Lockport in the 1840’s and 50’s. While his Irish born parents are assimilating into their New World, their eldest son is watching his nation of birth move toward civil war. This compelling story of loyalty, values, and the spirit of adventure clash with the realities of division, contempt and forgiveness.
I hope to see you there!
