Supper Book Club with Author Clár Ní Chonghaile

clarJoin us to welcome debut author Clár Ní Chonghaile 

to Frinton

on Thursday 11th February 2016

at Café 19 at 7pm

Clár has worked as a journalist for over 20 years and has lived in Madrid, Paris, the Ivory Coast, Senegal and Kenya. Whilst in
Nairobi, she freelanced for the Guardian and travelled to Somalia to cover the African Union’s battle against al Shabaab and the plight of
thousands of displaced people.

Her debut thriller Fractured is a very topical novel that will appeal to fans of Homeland and those interested in political thrillers.  The novel covers issues including Islamic fundamentalists, questions the motivations of extremists and deals with the theme of captivity, which unfortunately resonates all too clearly because of the increasingly frequent use of hostages for political purposes.  The novel takes place in Somalia, a country that has found itself pushed onto front pages for all the wrong reasons.

For a synopsis of the novel, please go to our Events Page, where you will also find Café 19’s delicious menu!


Happy New Year!

  • we will be starting the revamp of the Children’s Corner very soon – hopefully to unveil during the week of World Book Day

And at a time when many of you may be thinking about a body make-over, we felt that this quotation was rather apt!

Happy Reading!
