A Boston-Irish Read
Michael Patrick MacDonald is a Boston raised author who reflects on the residential area of South Boston. “Southie,” as they call it, had one of the highest rates of white poverty in America at the time with more than 85% of its residents collecting welfare. MacDonald beautifully portrays the best and worst moments of our local Boston community in his must-read book, All Souls: A Family Story from Southie.
