  • July’s Book Club Meeting!

    Tuesday, July 19, 2022, 7-9 pm: Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan, a 128-page novella published in Nov. 2021. Claire Keegan was born in Co. Wicklow, the youngest of a large Roman Catholic family. Her haunting short novel is set in New Ross, Co. Wexford at Christmas 1985. It tells of Bill Furlong, a man who has risen from humble origins to become a successful coal merchant, supplying the small Irish town with fuel. At home are his wife and five daughters, and together they live modestly but comfortably. Bill’s life is an unvarying routine of work, but one day , delivering coal to the local convent, he discovers a young woman freezing, locked in the coal cellar. Considering his own upbringing and his love for his daughters, Bill comes to question his certainties about the “good” sisters of the Convent and the folk in the town who, like him, turn a blind eye.
