Irish Book Club

  • Feb 21, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Irish Book Club meets every other month at Sue's House in Portland. She is a great hostess and is always well-prepared to lead an interesting discussion.

The book this month is: Redemption Falls by Joseph O' Connor. There is only one copy of the book at Portland Public Library but many copies in the state. If you are having trouble finding a copy contact me and I'll see what I can do about getting a copy.

                                 

1865: The American Civil War is ending. Eliza Duane Mulvey sets out from Lafayette, Louisiana, the town her mother Mary Duane called home. Alone, she walks across a devastated country in search of a youngster she has not seen in four years. One of the hundred thousand children drawn into the war, his fate has been mysterious and will prove extraordinary.

It’s a walk that will have consequences for many seemingly unconnected survivors: a love-struck cartographer, a beautiful Latina poetess, rebel guerrilla Johnny Thunders, runaway slave Grace McNeile, the mercurial revolutionary Giacomo O’Keefe, who commanded a brigade of Irish immigrants in the Union Army and is now Governor of a western wilderness where nothing is as it seems.

Sue's address will be sent out one week before the event.

****SNOW DATE FOR THIS EVENT IS FEBRUARY 28, 2013****

One dollar donation requested from non-members of the Irish American Club. IAC Members admitted free. Membership information available at event.

    Loved the book, but won't be able to attend this time. My guest wants to go to Vermont, and since she's only here a week, I should take her. I'll see you at the next one! Thanks.
