Book Chat with Irish writer Kevin Barry

March 10, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Online

We are so pleased to welcome highly acclaimed Irish writer Kevin Barry to this session of Book Chat. Speaking from Ireland via Zoom, Kevin will be talking with Readers’ Advisor Laura Cavers about his two most recent books, Night Boat to Tangier, longlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize, and That Old Country Music, a collection of short stories. Kevin and Laura will also discuss his previous novels and short story collections as well, and how Ireland informs his writing.


Book Chat Thursday is a monthly ‘what-to-read-next’ book talk at New Canaan Library.  Readers’ Advisor, Laura Cavers, invites a guest (an author, a local organization’s leader, librarian or lucky patron) to talk about current hot titles or topical books.  Tell your family, friends, or colleagues who love to read and want to build their TBR pile to visit.  Great for book groups and bibliophiles.  What books would you recommend?  We’d love to know!  Join us!
