EASON BOOK CLUB BOOK OF THE MONTH

In association with The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk 106-108fm

The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk 106-108 FM partners with the Eason Book Club to help us select our Book of the Month. Each month, Pat and his panel which is made up of bestselling author Claudia Carroll, journalist and author Caroline Foran and social media star and cookbook author James Kavanagh, pick the Eason Book of the Month from a shortlist of four books compiled by the Eason book team. In the last week of every month the panel will return to discuss the book on air and engage in a lively debate on the characters and themes of the chosen book.

Out of the Darkness Shining Light by Pettina Gappa

“This is how we carried out of Africa the poor broken body of Bwana Daudi, the Doctor, David Livingstone, so that he could be borne across the sea and buried in his own land.” So begins Petina Gappah's powerful novel of exploration and adventure in nineteenth-century Africa—the captivating story of the loyal men and women who carried explorer and missionary Dr. Livingstone's body, his papers and maps, fifteen hundred miles across the continent of Africa, so his remains could be returned home to England and his work preserved there.
