Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn't mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it's no trouble and I can give ...more ”

[close] Come read with us! In September 2020 we held an online public vote to choose the 4 books we would together explore between October 2020 and May 2021. The winning books were; They are: Climate Justice by Mary Robinson, Violent Borders by Reece Jones, On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal by Naomi Klein, Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit. Here's how it will work: 1. Read the book and / or associated read and watch lists (psst: you can receive a book of your choice from the 4 winning books for donating just €4 to us a month!) 2. Join the free public event where a contributor working on the issue covered in the book will join us to explore the issue and actions that can be taken to improve the situation. 3. Take part in a development education workshop to be part of a reflective, critical space for exploration of the issue, and to connect the dots between seemingly disparate issues of global justice in order to foster a sense of interconnectedness and understanding of root causes

All you need is an enquiring mind and a desire to gain or share “underground knowledge”. This is also a place to discuss the controversial topics explored in The Underground Knowledge Series (non-fiction books) by James Morcan & Lance Morcan as well as the Underground Knowledge podcast show.

[close] This group is for die-hard Maeve Binchy fans who want to get inspired by her in 2016. I will be reading all of her novels in publication order but you can read whichever ones appeal to you. We will discuss the books, and the themes that run throughout her works of fiction. I'd also like to see if we can find characters or places that appear in multiple books.
