"Small Things Like These" (Ce genre de petites choses)
by Claire Keegan

Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan
Registration Open!
Friday December 9  •  14h - 15h30 CET  •   Irish Cultural Centre

"Small Things Like These" (Ce genre de petites choses) by Claire Keegan

Claire Keegan's remarkable novella is set in a village in Ireland in December 1985 at a time of economic hardship and when the Catholic church still had a stranglehold on education, healthcare and morality. In a deeply moving tale of quiet heroism, Keegan addresses questions of complicity, human decency, and empathy.

Small Things Like These won the 2022 Orwell Price for Political Fiction, Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award and the Prix Lucioles 2020; is longlisted for The Booker Prize 2022 and shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize.

The discussion will be held at: 

Irish Cultural Centre, Paris

5, rue des Irlandais 75005 Paris
