Tate South Lambeth’s next reading group session is on Thursday January 12th at 6.30 to 8pm. This month the book we’ll be discussing is Small Things like These, the Booker prize nominated novel by Claire Keegan.
It is 1985, in an Irish town. A local coal and timber merchant feels the past – the Magalen laundries that were run by the Catholic Church – rising up to meet him, and encounters the silent, self-interested complicity of a small community controlled by the Church.
