Shortlisted for the Booker Prize this year, the short novel Small Things Like These is set in 1985 in a small Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal merchant and family man faces into his busiest season. Early one morning, while delivering an order to the local convent, Bill makes a discovery which forces him to confront both his past and the complicit silences of a town controlled by the church.

Already an international bestseller, Small Things Like These is a deeply affecting story of hope, quiet heroism, and empathy from one of our most critically lauded and iconic writers, Irish author Claire Keegan.

Copies will be available at the Self Checkout area. The eBook and eAudiobook are available on Hoopla and Libby/OverDrive with your Westchester Library System library card.

New members are always welcome to join the discussion. No worries if you haven't finished the book.
