Welcome to a brand-new month and a brand-new title for the Online Book Club! This month, we’re reading Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín

The Online Book Club, in case you’ve never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book. You can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving a comment in the comments section. Make sure you check back each week and see what new topics we’re talking about!

Brooklyn is the story of Eilis Lacey, a girl who leaves her small town in Ireland to travel to the United States. Eilis struggles with homesickness when she first makes it to her new home, but soon, she finds her place and starts to make friends. But then, a tragedy back in Ireland shakes her and makes her question everything she has learned in the U.S.

There’s also a movie adaptation, and it’s really great, so I encourage you to watch the movie this month after you read the book. You can watch the movie trailer if you’re interested to learn more about the story.


I hope you’ll join us this month! We’ll be discussing parts 1 and 2 starting September 11.
