An Irish childhood

It was standing room only at the Turn of the Corkscrew Bookstore in Rockville Centre, Nassau County, last night where Dr. Maureen Murphy introduced Tom Phelan, far left, who read a couple of chapters from his just published "We Were Rich and We Didn't Know It: A Memoir of My Irish Boyhood."
