Happy Reading over the Summer

What a lovely end to our reading year. Maura McElhone was an absolute pleasure to have at our last meeting and even though it was lashing rain all day, we still had a very good turn out…..and not a welly in sight!!

We will resume on 2nd Sept at the usual time , 5pm in the library. Over the Summer, I will  have copies of Graham Norton’s Holding for collection here.

Christine Dwyer Hickey will join us on 8th Oct as part of the Red Line Book Festival. There will be copies of The Narrow Land here for you all on the 2nd Sept.
