The Bealtaine Book Club aims to honour and promote an Irish writer with a distinguished and lengthy career who has made a significant contribution to literature. It also aims to encourage older readers and writers and to create a greater understanding of issues impacting on older age. In 2019, the Bealtaine Book Club author is Éilís Ní Dhuibhne and the Bealtaine Book is 'Twelve Thousand Days' (2018) published by Blackstaff Press. Ní Dhuibhne was selected by Libraries around Ireland as the Bealtaine Book Club author. 'Twelve Thousand Days' concerns the author’s 30 year relationship with husband and folklorist Bo Almquist who died in 2013. We hope you will join with us in celebrating this book and author over the coming months. Check with your local library for a copy of the book.
