Guest for Saturday April 23, 2011 – 10am – 12pm:

Mary Pat Kelly: As an author and filmmaker, Mary Pat Kelly has told various stories connected to Ireland. In her latest book “Galway Bay” the story is based on her own great-great-grandmother Honora Kelly who escaped with her family from the Great Famine of 1840’s Ireland and how they helped turn Chicago from a frontier town into the “City of the Century”. She also discusses growing up Irish American in the mid-west.
