The December book club was a little different — we didn’t review a book. Instead, several people took part in discussing one of our favorite topics — IRELAND — with pictures, places to visit, trip reviews and geneology. We also learned about how Ireland has changed over the past few decades.
Stay tuned to learn the title and author of the book Sheila Dohm will present on January 2.

The late 2017 book club schedule has proved very interesting. In October, Phil Faulkner presented his book, “Chicago Freight Tunnels”. November’s book was “The Life and Times of Eamon De Valera”, who was the first President of Ireland presented by Rita Dillard.
Our December meeting will be presentations by various people who will show pictures or talk about visits to Ireland, as well as discussion about how Ireland has changed over the years.
Thank you Marius for providing us a place to meet, and your great staff who also doubles as photographer.
