Our Irish Book Subscription service!


Over the course of 12 months, you will receive six newly released books by Irish or Irish-American authors.

Each title will be hand picked by local author, Ethel Rohan (The Weight of HimIn the Event of Contact).  Each book will be accompanied by a letter from Ethel Rohan detailing why she's chosen the book and how she believes it will reward and transport you.  We're delighted to partner with Ethel Rohan on this venture and grateful for the passion and expertise she'll bring.


Ethel Rohan can't tell you where home is. It's no longer Dublin, Ireland, where she was born and raised. It's not quite San Francisco, where she's lived for thirty years. She exists in some in-between place. What she can tell you is that she enjoys a great sense of belonging inside books, and while she reads widely her tastes tend to favor her Irish roots (think Colm Tóibín, Nuala O’Faolain, Kevin Barry, Lucy Caldwell, Tana French, Maeve Brennan, and Jennifer Egan). Her selections will focus on books that deliver a distinct voice, gorgeous prose, striking characters, atmospheric stories, a mesmerizing sense of place, and timeless relevance born out of an ancient and unique culture. She can't wait to share her upcoming favorite reads with subscribers and showcase books with the power to entertain, enliven and enlarge us.
