Father John McNamee Poetry reading
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
1400 Montgomery Ave.
A man of Irish wit and humor with a gift of poetry, parish priest, Father McNamee will read selections from Donegal Suite and poems not yet published. Perhaps best known for his efforts on behalf of the poor, Father McNamee is a pastor emeritus of Saint Malachy Church (Philadelphia, PA) and the author of several books of prose and poetry which champion the cause of the poor. His best known book, Diary of a City Priest, was made into a movie and appeared at numerous film festivals with distribution rights on public television.
McNamee’s presentation is free and open to the public.
