Readers, book lovers and book clubs everywhere are invited to join in the Art of Reading monthly bookclub, a collaboration between libraries and the Laureate for Irish Fiction, Colm Tóibín.
Over the course of 2022, the Laureate will meet a different library book club each month to discuss a novel by an Irish writer, highlighting outstanding Irish writing and celebrating readers and book clubs. Each event will be recorded and available to watch online or to listen to as a podcast.
On February 24th watch Waterford Libraries Tramore Book Club discuss ‘Small Things Like These’ with the book’s author Claire Keegan and the new Laureate for Irish Fiction, Colm Tóibín as part of the Art of Reading Monthly Book club series.
This short novel manages to dramatize both private life and public matters. It does so by working in careful, meticulous, emotionally-accurate detail, making no grand statements about character or circumstance. Everything is intimate, almost low-key, and yet the implications of the narrative are far-reaching.
Details of The Art of Reading Book Club monthly events can be found on the Arts Council website at: https://www.artscouncil.ie/laureate/ via Facebook at www.facebook.com/LaureateIrishFiction and follow @LaureateFiction on Twitter #TheArtofReading and Instagram laureateirishfiction and on the Arts Council podcast channel
The Arts of Reading Book Club is an initiative of the Arts Council and the Laureate for Irish Fiction, in partnership with Libraries Ireland.
