The December Book Club at The Jackie Clarke Collection will take place on Tuesday, 16 December at 7pm. The Book Club will be discussing A Year’s Turning (1996) by Michael Viney. All are warmly invited to take part in a discussion.
Written and illustrated by naturalist, Michael Viney, this unique book is a record of ‘Irish country life’ over more than a decade. Michael and Ethna Viney left successful city media careers for ‘a self-reliant existence on a remote cottage farm’ near the coast in Thallabawn, South Mayo. The book evokes changing states of Nature, while mentioning the community, animals, sea-creatures, self-sufficiency and the ocean. (Further information: 096 73508).
