Gaelic Americans

This week brings a new podcast episode of the reading of Mrs. Miller’s the Bride of the Tomb. After listening this this, take some time to catch up on the newly available issues of dime novels (in Spanish) and story papers (in English). Read along in issues of the 1917 Gaelic American as the US involvement in the Great War heats up. As well, over-sized materials from a variety of series of the Barry-Hayes papers are now available!
