The real Charlotte by Somerville and Ross

I have chosen this book to compliment the Irish Women writers and The big House Series we are running during May and June in The Coach House.

Terrence Dooley will kick start the series on the 2nd May at 7.30pm with a talk on Significant dates in the history of The Big House so that we have a good overview of the period these books were written. From then, Roslyn Hickey will pick up the book studies:

9th May Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth

23rd May The Real Charlotte by Somerville and Ross

6th June The Last September by Elizabeth Bowen

20th June Good Behaviour by Mollie Keane

Our club will attend the 23rd May session at 7pm to discuss The real Charlotte 

Christine Dwyer Hickey visit in The Coach House on Tuesday 10th April

Christine , who hails from Palmerstown, won the Short Story competition in last years Irish Book Awards with “Back to Bones” joined us for a most interesting and entertaining afternoon. The book club invited the Mill Lane Writers along to listen to the experienced voice of a well established writer. Also, we were also treated to a reading from her new book which will be published next year.  Best wishes to Christine on the new book and thanks for an enjoyable couple of hours from all our readers and writers.
