One City, One Book

Although we are all living in Meath, we could not but mention the fantastic 'One City, One Book' initiative by the Dublin City Council which is led by Dublin City Public Libraries.  This event encourages everyone to read a book connected with the capital city during the month of April every year. Last year readers had the privilege of reading James Joyce's 'Dubliners'.
The chosen book for April 2013 is "Strumpet City" by James Plunkett.  Those of you studying History or the poetry of W.B.Yeats may be particularly interested as the novel is set during the 1913 Lock-Out.  Here's a link to the website encouraging us all to pick up the novel and learn about our capital city...
