ZingTrain and Zingerman’s Bakehouse are excited to co-host Irish writer and documentary maker, Manchán Magan, for a special presentation celebrating the Irish language, land, and local Irish food.


Through freshly-baked traditional sourdough bread for the audience to slice and spread, and butter they churn from Irish cream, Manchán will captivate your inner linguist – exploring the potent words of landscape, terms of intuition and insight, and the many phrases that bring to life the glory of the natural world.


Seats are limited. Grab your tickets today! We are thrilled to be a venue on the US tour of Arán & Im.


Thirty Two Words for Field: Lost Words of the Irish Landscape, [is] a riproaring, archaeological and anthropological exploration of the lyricism, mystery and oddities of the Irish language, and the layers of ancient knowledge encoded within. You won’t have to speak Irish –  you don’t even have to be Irish – to be wholly absorbed by this unique, enchanting book, which has been six years in the research and writing.” The Irish Times
