Placentia, CA- Join us for a lively discussion of Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan. “With echoes of Angela’s Ashes and even The Notebook . . . Ellis Island is a feel-good story about love, freedom, belonging and the meaning of home” - Stylist magazine.
Already a hit in the United Kingdom, Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan is both a poignant love story and a lyrical, evocative depiction of the immigrant experience in early 20th century America. Set in the 1920s, Kerrigan’s novel tells of a young Irish woman who must choose between her new life in New York City and her husband back home in Ireland, brilliantly capturing these two vastly different worlds in the process. Readers of historical fiction, as well as fans of the novels of Frank Delany and other Irish themed works, will adore their time spent on Ellis Island.
Each month, our Book Club focuses on notable titles in a friendly lunchtime setting. The discussions are open to all readers, and the Library will provide extra copies of the selected titles for checkout prior to the discussion. Join other readers; bring your lunch and we will provide the dessert. This program is sponsored by the Placentia Library Friends Foundation.
