Taking place on Thursday 21st October at 7pm, the book club will cover Shirley-Anne McMillen’s ‘Every Sparrow Falling’ as well as a discussion on Brian McGilloway’s ‘Blood Ties’, followed by a Q&A session.

In March, Translink launched its new virtual Book Club, ‘Novel Journeys’, in partnership with independent bookstore, No Alibis, to champion the benefits of reading and to stay connected with their passengers and the wider public. Every month, Translink announces a new title via social media to help passengers switch off, unwind and support their mental wellbeing.
