At Eddo & Dandy, we are passionate about promoting self care and wellness and we want to encourage connectedness, especially during this strange time in Irish history.

Just as scent can evoke a feeling or a memory, books can provide the soundtrack to real life experiences the characters, ideas, dilemmas and behaviors we learn through our books help us “read” everything else that surrounds us

We will be hosting a free monthly book club where we will read an eclectic mix of books from both Irish and international authors, spanning a wide variety of genres and topics. At the end of each book, we will announce the next title. We will also be welcoming title suggestions from our members.

What’s This Months Book?

The chosen book for May’s book club is Other Women by Cathy Kelly. Available on our website, at all good bookshops, at your local library and on Kindle.

Three women. Three secrets. Three tangled lives… Sid wears her independence like armour. So when she strikes up a rare connection with unlucky-in-love Finn, they are both determined to prove that men and women can just be friends. Can’t they?

Marin has the perfect home, attentive husband, two beloved children – and a secret addiction to designer clothes. She knows she has it all, so why can’t she stop comparing herself to other women? Bea believes that we all have one love story – and she’s had hers. Now her life centres around her son and support group of fierce single mums – the women she shares everything with. Well, apart from the one secret she can’t tell anyone… In the messy reality of marriage, family and romance, sometimes it’s the women in our lives who hold us together. 

When Will the Book Club Take Place?

The Eddo & Dandy Book Club May meeting is taking place through Zoom at 7pm on Wednesday 19th May 2021 (hopefully giving you plenty of time to complete the book!)

We intend on hosting the book club once a month on the second last Wednesday of the month. (Cos there is always something on the last week!)
