  • Tuesday, November 21: Book Club

  • TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2017, 7-9 PM at the clubhouse: Lion of Ireland by American-Irish author Morgan Llywelyn (born Sally Snyder in NYC), ©2002. This novel is about the life of the Irish hero and High King Brian Boru and begins with his life as a child about 8 or 9 and ends with him as an 88-year-old man. The book shows his rise to power and his struggle to maintain it. His personal life is an important part of the plot, because Brian’s war against Máel Mórda (leader of the Leinstermen) and Sihtric (king of Dublin) was to be inextricably connected with his complicated marital relations, in particular his marriage to Gormlaith, Máel Mórda’s sister and Sihtric’s mother, who had been in turn the wife of Amlaíb Cuarán, king of Dublin and York, then of Máel Sechnaill. Even though the book is based on a historical figure, most of it is fiction. After tracing the Llywelyn family history, the auther made a career out of writing historical novels that allowed an exploration of her Celtic roots. She relocated to Ireland in 1985, lives outside Dublin, and became an Irish citizen. [There is at least one copy of this book in the club library.]
