  • Tuesday, May 15: Book Club

    Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 7-9 PM at the clubhouse
    Are You Somebody?: The Accidental Memoir of a Dublin Woman by Nuala O’Faolain
    © 1996, 240 pages (paperback). One of nine children born into a penniless North Dublin family, Nuala O’Faolain was saved from a harrowing childhood by her love of books and reading. Though she ultimately became one of Ireland’s best-known columnists, her professional success did little to ease her loneliness and longing for a deep connection to the world. Are You Somebody? distills her experiences into a wisdom that can only come from an obstinate refusal to shrink from life. Nuala O’Faolain was a waitress, sales clerk, and maid; a university lecturer; a TV producer; and a columnist with The Irish Times. The author of three consecutive New York Times bestsellers, her books include the memoir Almost There, a follow-up to Are You Somebody?, as well as two novels: My Dream of You and The Story of Chicago May. She died in Dublin in 2008.

    All Members are welcome. The only requirement is having read the book.

  • Sunday, May 20: Historical Talk – Ireland and Irish Americans

    Historical Talk – Ireland and Irish Americans, 1932-1945: The Search for Identity
    Presented by
    John Day Tully, PhD
    Sunday, May 20th ~ 1:00 pm (Club opens at noon)
    In the 1930s, both the Irish in Ireland and the Irish in the United States were struggling with ways to define and defend their sense of purpose and identity. This talk explores how the Irish and Irish Americans negotiated their new identities and how each struggle played itself out, especially before and during World War II. Through an examination of politics, diplomacy, Irish-American literature and comics, and the voices of Irish and Irish-American leaders, the relationship between the Irish on both sides of the Atlantic will be discussed.

    This is a free event, however, registration is requested.
    To register, please call 207-947-3516 or email mark.n.morse@gmail.com

    Please note: The Club will be closed from 12:00 – 3:00 pm except for those attending the program.
