Libraries NI Online Book Club

Do you enjoy talking about books? If so why not join Libraries NI adult online book group.

The group is open to readers across Northern Ireland so this is an opportunity to meet new people and share your love of reading. The books chosen for discussion cover a wide range of genres with a focus on new writing. Details of the title for discussion are published on our website and the online meeting will take place on the last Thursday of each month.

Our Book of the Month for May is 'We know you remember' by Tove Alsterdal.

A missing girl, a hidden body, a decades-long cover-up, and old sins cast in new light: the classic procedural meets Scandinavian atmosphere in this rich, character-driven mystery, awarded Best Swedish Crime Novel of the Year, that heralds the American debut of a supremely skilled international writer.

It’s been more than twenty years since Olof Hagström left home. Returning to his family’s house, he knows instantly that something is amiss. The front door key, hidden under a familiar stone, is still there. Inside, there’s a panicked dog, a terrible stench, water pooling on the floor. Upstairs in the shower, the father Olaf has not seen or spoken to in decades is dead.

Pick up a copy in your local library here.

The adult online reading group meets via Zoom on Thursday 26 May 2022 from 1:00pm - 2:00pm.

Register now or contact our team at enquiries@librariesni.org.uk. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
