Boston's Four Green Fields Pub & Restaurant is hosting writer Ray O’Hanlon on Saturday, February 26, 2011, for a reading of his new novel, The South Lawn Plot. The reading begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free to the public.
O'Hanlon, a seasoned journalist, is editor of the national newspaper, The Irish Echo, based in New York City. This is his first novel, described as a global thriller straddling four centuries and two continents, with a showdown between an American President and a British Prime Minister.
Writer Pete Hamill called O’Hanlon’s novel “a wonderful work, with a layered, hard-driving narrative, vivid characters, abiding mysteries and the past that has not passed.”
The book is published by GemmaMedia in Boston, which publishes an exciting range of books on cultural memoir, fiction, journalism, and current affairs.
Four Green Fields, Boston's newest pub, opened on February 11, 2011. Named for a song by the late Irish ballad singer Tommy Makem, Four Green Fields features a spacious first floor restaurant with an oyster bar, an upstairs lounge named for Irish-American boxing champ John L. Sullivan, and an authentic Irish Thatch Cottage.
The pub is located just steps away from the Boston Irish Famine Memorial and other local Irish landmarks along the Irish Heritage Trail.
