Author and historian Margaret Lynch-Brennan will offer a portrait of the lives and experiences of young Irish women who emigrated to the United States between 1840-1930 and worked as domestic servants.  Popularly called “Bridget,” they helped shape the place of the Irish in America even as they acculturated and absorbed the values of their employers.  Lynch-Brennan gives voice to the “Irish Bridgets,” celebrating their contribution to the ethnic history of the United States.  Join us for this fascinating talk .
