In Person Book Club: 'The Raptures' by Jan Carson

This July, our book clubs will read and discuss ‘The Raptures’ by Jan Carson.

About the Book

Set in a Northern Irish village, the story follows 11-year-old Hannah as she encounters a mysterious illness sweeping through her school.

Part supernatural mystery, part Agatha Christie-style whodunnit, the book explores the trauma of loss and the dangers of religious zealotry.

About the Book Clubs

The book clubs are held on the last Tuesday and Thursday of every month, one taking place online and the other in-person at Richmond Barracks. We start each session with an inclusive discussion about the current title and then have a broader discussion about what we’re reading and swap recommendations. 

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact us on +353 1 524 2532 or email us at
