WEDNESDAY, March 16 at 7:00pm : "The Quiet Man"

Yes my friends, it is that time of year again.  It is time for that story again:  Maurice Walsh's The Quiet Man.  It's one of my favorite stories (wriiten by Walsh in 1933), and became one of my favorite movies ( in 1951, winning two Academy Awards).

 Sean Kelvin is a quiet, peace-loving man...not above stoppin' for a moment in the fields and just watching the wind blow through the grass, and see the swell of the distant sea.  But there was no mistaking!  Sean was not lazy, just quiet.  But when he falls in love with lovely, read-haired Ellen O'Grady, sister to bullying landowner Big Liam O'Grady, Sean's peace is about to be sorely tested.  And everyone is about to find out just how quiet, and patient a "quiet man" can be.

Presented live in voice with another "warm up" story from Irish literature . . . a great way to get in the mood for St Patrick's Day!
