A book lover’s paradise will be taking place on Saint Patrick’s Day in the Bronx. Thanks to the Irish Arts Center, Book Day is a yearly event where thousands of free books on Irish literature are handed out to commuters in all five boroughs.

On March 17th at 7:30 a.m. volunteers will hand out books by Irish authors like Seamus Heaney, Flann O’Brien, Maeve Higgins, Patrick O’ Keefe, Lyndsay Faye, Frank Delancy, and many more. They will also have copies of Seamus Heaney’s Human Chain translated in Spanish.

Here’s a list of all their locations for the day. A table will be set up at the Northwest corner of Bedford Park Boulevard and Grand Concourse, near the B and D train station.
