EFACIS Book Club

The EFACIS book club aims to introduce readers to highlights of Irish literature, both past and present. All meetings of the EFACIS book club will take place online, via zoom. Readings and discussions are in English. We usually meet on Wednesdays between 8 pm and 10 pm (CET). During our 2-hour sessions, the work is briefly introduced and contextualized by an expert and then discussed by the participants of the session. Sometimes authors join the book club meetings in the second half.  Have a look at the EFACIS Book Club page for this year's reading list!
