An Irish Book Club

Ireland has a rich literary past and present, and the club exists to have fun exploring Irish literature! Most of the books we read are by authors who were born in Ireland or who lived there. Occasionally we read books by Irish Americans or books set in Ireland by authors of other nationalities. We try to cover a variety of viewpoints and styles, and we hope that anyone who likes to read will find something here.

The book club meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month, September-November and January-May, at 6:00 pm. Specific readings are listed in the Club Schedule to the right.

FREE. RSVP required.  Membership encouraged.

I’m a transplant to Kansas City from Omaha with a lifelong love of books. I have an MFA in creative writing from UMKC, and I write fiction and book reviews, though I mostly make my living as a product writer at a software company. My connection to Irish literature: I took a James Joyce class in graduate school, and I never looked back.
