New Canaan Library is pleased to welcome acclaimed Irish writer Kevin Barry to the Thursday, March 10 session of Book Chat. Speaking from Ireland via Zoom at 11 AM EST, 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. Register at newcanaanlibrary.org for Zoom sign in.

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!
