Irish dancers: Author Brenna Briggs is coming to town!

With her toe-tapping tales, author Brenna Briggs is coming to New York! She's got the perfect series of adventures for Irish dancers, inside the quirky world of 13-year-old Irish dancer and girl detective Liffy Rivers.

Briggs is the author of the "Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries," which The Irish World in London has compared to Enid Blyton's adventure series, "if you throw in a lot more reels and hornpipes."

Briggs was born in Pittsburgh, PA into an Irish American family where she thought cookies with green icing on Saint Patrick's Day was the best thing about being Irish.

Over the years, she has discovered there is even more to her Irish heritage.

Briggs writes monthly serialized "Liffey Rivers" short stories for Irish Dance and Culture magazine. She has published articles in Hornpipe Magazine, The Irish American Post, The Sligo Quarterly Review and many Irish American magazines and newspapers.

Visit Brenna Briggs and learn more about the "Liffey Rivers-Irish Dancer-Girl Detective" books at The Big Apple Feis March 12-13. Chat with Brenna, listen to her book readings, take pictures, enjoy a book-signing, and have a chance to win a series of her books.

She's traveling all the way from Ireland just to see you, her friends and fans.
