Dunne, who performed at our club on Aug. 20th, puts a human face on the “Irish famine” with his historical, romantic novel where the love of Liam and Maire is the central focus of a story that begins in the medieval town of Athenry in County Galway. The story depicts the struggles of the O’Donoghue and Donnelly families in a superbly researched book about life in Ireland and Australia during the years of “An Gorta More” – The Great Hunger.

  • Read a Remarkable, Witty Tale with our IHSM Book Club!

    Tuesday, January 18, 2022: Good Eggs: A Novel by Rebecca Hardiman ©2021, 336 pages. It is the story of three generations of the Gogartys, a boisterous Irish family living in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, whose simmering tensions boil over when an American home aide enters the picture. Kooky octogenarian Millie is saddled with a home caregiver to help curtail her shoplifting habit just as her hell-raising granddaughter Aideen is banished to a boarding school. Each falls prey to a questionable new friend, careening toward calamity—and each other. A witty, exuberant debut by a former magazine editor who lives in NJ with her husband and three children.
