Pitton Book Club – “Small Things Like These” by Claire Keegan.
The next Book Club meeting will be held on Monday 27th February at 7.30pm in the Hook & Glove, Farley, when we will be discussing “ Small Things Like These”by Claire Keegan.
Set in a small Irish town and following a coal and timber merchant confronted by the past, this magnetic tale of determination and quiet heroism from the author of Foster is as hopeful as it is haunting. It is 1985, in an Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal and timber merchant, faces into his busiest season. As he does the rounds, he feels the past rising up to meet him – and encounters the complicit silences of a people controlled by the Church.
The long-awaited new work from the author of Foster, Small Things Like These is an unforgettable story of hope, quiet heroism and tenderness.
The Pitton & Farley Book Club meets on the third Wednesday of every month, the venue alternating between The Hook and Glove in Farley, and the Silver Plough in Pitton.
