Events by EventfulBook Discussion- The Secret Scripture
On Thursday, March 21st at 6:30pm, YHPL will be hosting a book discussion for The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry.
In her youth, Roseanne McNulty was one of the most beautiful women in her hometown of County Sligo, Ireland. Now, as her 100th birthday approaches, she begins to reflect back on her life, and the many years she has spent locked away in the Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital. Will unearthing the secrets and past transgressions that kept her buried there provide absolution? Or, will they threaten the long awaited freedom she yearns for as the decrepit, Victorian institution is soon to be demolished.
The Secret Scripture was the recipient of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, one of the oldest and most prestigious literature prizes in the United Kingdom.
