Spring 2015

with the Cigar Society

Terence Ó Baoghill will read some of his favorite Irish faerie stories by candlelight in a smoke-filled room, to which much excellent Irish whiskey and beer will have been brought. We may hear the stories of Oisín (pronounced O'Sheen), the centuries-old and legendary Irish hero, as he describes his wanderings to St. Patrick, the great converter of Irish pagans to Christianity, and snake driver. Or we may hear of stolen children, mysterious disappearances, or double lives lived in parallel with the occult, or sad shepherds, or mad kings.  Terry Boyle, a native of Derry, Northern Ireland, teaches Irish and British literature at Loyola University.

About the Cigar Society of Chicago

ONE OF THE OLDEST AND greatest traditions of the city clubs of Chicago is the discussion of intellectual, social, legal, artistic, historical, scientific, musical, theatrical, and philosophical issues in the company of educated, bright, and appropriately provocative individuals, all under the beneficent influence of substantial amounts of tobacco and spirits.  The Cigar Society of Chicago embraces this tradition and extends it with its Informal Smokers, University Series lectures, and Cigar Society Dinners, in which cigars, and from time to time pipes and cigarettes, appear as an important component of our version of the classical symposium.  To be included in the Cigar Society's mailing list, write to the Secretary at curtis.tuckey@logicophilosophicus.org.
