Berkshire Historical Society presents readings of Christmas tales by Kevin O'Hara


Noted Pittsfield author and longtime columnist for The Berkshire Eagle Kevin O'Hara will read Christmas tales included in his new illustrated book, “A Christmas Journey” in an event presented by The Berkshire County Historical Society at Arrowhead, the historic home of Herman Melville, on Wednesday, December 15 at 5 p.m.

“A Christmas Journey” includes 16 of O’Hara’s annual Christmas column published in The Berkshire Eagle. The stories range in subject from tales of his growing up in Pittsfield to poignant tales of his time as a psychiatric nurse at Berkshire Medical Center to his Christmas celebration in an Irish pub at the conclusion of his famous travels in Ireland with Missie the donkey.

O’Hara is also the author of two books, “Last Of The Donkey Pilgrims,” about his travels with Missie around Ireland, and “A Lucky Irish Lad,” about his boyhood.
