Join Golden Hare Books for a special event to kick off our much-beloved Book Club once again!

 

Date: Thursday 26th May 2022 @ 18:30

 

Our pick for May's Book Club is Trespasses by Louise Kennedy.

And to really make it a special event, we're hosting Louise and fellow author Fiona Mozley for a conversation at Golden Hare Books. 

Audience members will be invited to read the book and feel free to join in the conversation as appropriate. This will be a fun, relaxed event, with plenty of time to chat to the authors and ultimately each other about the book.

From June onwards, we will go back to our traditional Book Club format.



About Trespasses:

There is nothing special about the day Cushla meets Michael, a married man from Belfast, in the pub owned by her family. But here, love is never far from violence, and this encounter will change both of their lives forever.

As people get up each morning and go to work, school, church or the pub, the daily news rolls in of another car bomb exploded, another man beaten, killed or left for dead. In the class Cushla teaches, the vocabulary of seven-year-old children now includes phrases like 'petrol bomb' and 'rubber bullets'. And as she is forced to tread lines she never thought she would cross, tensions in the town are escalating, threatening to destroy all she is working to hold together.

Tender and shocking, Trespasses is an unforgettable debut of people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times.
