Memoirs set in Calabria (the dolce vita calabrese)
The TripFiction Book Club May/June ’19 reads ‘Future Popes of Ireland’ by Darragh Martin
20th April 2019
For those TripFiction fans who don’t already know, we have a TripFiction Book Club that we kicked off back in March 2017 with a romantic journey to beautiful Sardinia, along with author Rosanna Ley and her vivid characters.
Head over to the separate #TFBookClub page or find us on social media to hear about the latest book we’re reading. This is the place where we all meet to read and exchange views on location-based novels of interest. Every two months we select a book, give out a number of paperback copies (UK only) and digital copies for those who prefer that format, and for those who are outside the UK, and start the dialogue. It’s a great way to read a good book in the company of others, and to join in the discussions.
And in May and June join us in IRELAND for the big-hearted, funny and sad debut novel ‘Future Popes of Ireland’ by Darragh Martin. For more information click on the #TFBookClub link (apply HERE by 30th April for a copy).
Our first thirteen outings for the #TFBookClub have seen us travel the world, seeing different locations through the eyes of authors:
