THAT NEW BOOK SMELL: NEW HOLDINGS AT FALVEY

unlikely entrepreneursThe excerpt below best represents the “major issues in the history of medicine, women’s history, and immigration history” addressed in Unlikely Entrepreneurs by Barbra Mann Wall.

“In 1877, Sister Lidwina Butler sat in the dimly lit steerage compartment of a trans-Atlantic sailing vessel, her thoughts no doubt shifting between the Ireland she left behind and the New World she would soon embrace. Few in this last great wave of Irish immigrants could have foreseen that this youthful nun would one day become the administrator of a major Catholic hospital.”


QUOTE OF THE DAY
“It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” – The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle


HAVE A GREAT DAY!
