Virtual Book Group; or ‘The Taming of the Zoom’ – ‘A Long Long Way’ by Sebastian Barry

So we thought we’d got away with just 3 months of virtual book groups, but it seems we’re heading for a few more months without meeting in-person, and we just can’t wait until our doors are open again to start up our book groups!
We’ve planned 3 more months of virtual bookish chat, with each month focusing on an early title from a major prize-winning author.
We’re wrapping up the book groups with ‘A Long Long Way’ by Costa Book of the Year winner Sebastian Barry.
One of the most vivid and realised characters of recent fiction, Willie Dunne is the innocent hero of Sebastian Barry’s highly acclaimed novel. Leaving Dublin to fight for the Allied cause as a member of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, he finds himself caught between the war playing out on foreign fields and that festering at home, waiting to erupt with the Easter Rising.
Profoundly moving, intimate and epic, A Long Long Way charts and evokes a terrible coming of age, one too often written out of history.
Attending our book group is completely free – just register above to reserve your space in the group, and we will drop you an email just before the event with the link to the group chat.
