The Dream of the Celt by Mario Vargas Llosa – meeting at 5pm on Tuesday 5th September in the library

This biographical novel on the life of Roger Casement is our book for the Summer.  We chose it to compliment an upcoming talk in the Coach House. Angus Mitchell, an expert historian on Casement,  will speak at our local History and Heritage event on 14th September this year,

‘O! Woman of the Endless Labours’: Roger Casement’s letters to Alice Stopford Green (1904-1916). Talk by Angus Mitchell.

“Mario Vargas Llosa’s semi-fictionalised account of Casement’s life portrays a heroic, if ultimately tragic champion of oppressed peoples…Absorbing.” Sunday Telegraph.
