The Irish Invade Cleveland & Transform It – Delve into Cleveland’s rich Irish history with author and historian Margaret Lynch. Margaret will share details about how the Irish came to Cleveland, and what they did to transform it.
Margaret Lynch is the Executive Director of the Irish American Archives Society in Cleveland. She is a freelance writer and arts education consultant who has developed arts education programming at Great Lakes Theater Festival and the Mandel Jewish Community Center. Often writing about Irish immigrant stories, she is a playwright with productions at Dobama Theatre, Cleveland Contemporary Dance Theatre, and Stagedoor Manor in New York.
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
