Clare Reads: The Stream of Everything by John Connell

Clare Libraries is delighted to present its annual Clare Reads Day 2022. Every year Clare Libraries celebrates the work of an Irish author by encouraging the whole community to read one of their chosen books. 

The chosen author this year is John Connell, author of The Cow Book and the Running Book. Clare Reads Day will feature John’s latest book The Stream of Everything - an account of a two-day trip along the Camlin river in a kayak during lockdown with a close friend. The rich biodiversity of the river forms a quiet backdrop to John's much-loved philosophical observations.

Book Clubs around Clare will read and discuss John's book together. If you would like to be involved you can request a copy of The Stream of Everything at your nearest library. You can also access it as an e-book and an e-audiobook via the Borrow Box app.

Clare Reads Day also includes a special author event on Friday 11 November in Scariff Library. John Connell will be interviewed by Jim O’Brien, journalist with the Farming Independent, and author of Matters of Great Indifference. All are welcome to attend. 

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
