Deireadh Fómhair — New Books — October 2019

Posted on October 28, 2019 in New Books

Over 170 new books arrived this month. The list below includes poetry, history and Irish language books.

Poetry

Many poetry books come in paperback covers that are attractive, but not very durable. If you see a book listed here that is not yet available according to the catalog, it might have been sent to the bindery. You may still place a hold and the book will be held for you (Notre Dame community only).
