Author seeking information
To The Editor:
I’m hoping your readers may be able to help me. I’m currently researching a book about the Irish playwright Brendan Behan and I’ve come across reports of him spending a weekend in Margaretville.
Basically, having fallen ill and missing his boat to Ireland, Behan sought “haven” in the home of attorney Joseph Brill and his family.
I was wondering if any of your readers had any recall or memories of his visit? I’ve seen from your own archive that Behan was out and about in the town over the course of his four days in the area.
