  • Dear IHSM Book Club Members,
    Our Book Club has been meeting since October 2016, and we’ve read 21 books to date. Here are the remaining selections for 2020. Please note the change for July 21: members decided on Tuesday night to postpone reading a 2nd Edna O’Brien book till later in the year since our next selection is her memoir. Don’t forget that the March meeting is the 4th Tuesday vs 3rd (St. Patrick’s Day).
    Sláinte,
    Kathy

    Tuesday, November 16, 2021: Athenry: An Odyssey of Sacrifice, Survival and Love by Cahal Dunne ©2020, 172 pages. Dunne, who will be performing at our club on Aug. 20th, puts a human face on the “Irish famine” with his historical, romantic novel where the love of Liam and Maire is the central focus of a story that begins in the medieval town of Athenry in County Galway. The story depicts the struggles of the O’Donoghue and Donnelly families in a superbly researched book about life in Ireland and Australia during the years of “An Gorta More” – The Great Hunger.

    Tuesday, January 18, 2022: Good Eggs: A Novel by Rebecca Hardiman ©2021, 336 pages. It is the story of three generations of the Gogartys, a boisterous Irish family living in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, whose simmering tensions boil over when an American home aide enters the picture. Kooky octogenarian Millie is saddled with a home caregiver to help curtail her shoplifting habit just as her hell-raising granddaughter Aideen is banished to a boarding school. Each falls prey to a questionable new friend, careening toward calamity—and each other. A witty, exuberant debut by a former magazine editor who lives in NJ with her husband and three children.
