This month’s DG Book Club book is called Small Things Like These, by Claire Keegan.
It is 1985 in a small Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal merchant and family man faces into his busiest season. Early one morning, while delivering an order to the local convent, Bill makes a discovery which forces him to confront both his past and the complicit silences of a town controlled by the church.
Already an international bestseller, Small Things Like These is a deeply affecting story of hope, quiet heroism, and empathy from one of our most critically lauded and iconic writers.
The next book club will be held Wednesday 6.00pm 1 March 2023. Please DM or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like any further info or are interested in joining, everyone is welcome!
