Although many think of St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) as a day of parading and imbibing, St. Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture. It particularly remembers St. Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. To commemorate this holiday, bookstores and libraries may choose to focus on the wealth of exceptional writing by Irish writers, or books set in the country.
