December Book Club at the Jackie Clarke Collection


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).
