Charleston Town Center, Main Library

Type: Book Discussion
Age: Adult
Topic: Book Discussion, Celtic Calling

Join us for a special discussion this month as we get ready to celebrate Celtic Calling weekend the first weekend in March. We will discuss “The Girl Who Came Home” by Hazel Gaynor, a novel inspired by the true events surrounding a group of fourteen Irish emigrants who left their homes in County Mayo, Ireland, to travel on the Titanic to relatives in America. The group is known locally as the Addergoole Fourteen. When the Titanic sank, the loss of eleven passengers from the group represented the largest proportional loss of life from one region. For the purposes of the novel, the names of all members of the group have been changed and, although based in fact, this is very much a work of fiction. Copies of the book are limited and can be picked up at the Reference Desk. For updates on the group, like our page on Facebook:
