Online Book Club - Journeys in Words

Building on the success of Galway's Great Read: Eilís Dillon Online Book Club, Galway Libraries, in association with Emily Cullen, present two online book clubs to brighten up those dark winter evenings between December and March. 

The first book club, Journeys in Words - from Galway to Dublin, aimed at an older age demographic, will explore the work of two contrasting Irish writers of the last century: Liam O’Flaherty and Maeve Brennan. The second book club, Women Writer's of the West, aimed at a general audience, will focus on  contemporary female writers based in Galway City and County, namely Elaine Feeney, Nuala O'Connor and Mary Costello. 

The book club sessions will be facilitated by poet and curator Emily Cullen with guest writers invited each week. Membership is free but pre-booking via our Eventbrite page is essential to reserve a limited place.
