STAND Book Club provides a space for people to get together and talk about books that opened their minds, made them mad, got them to see the world differently or encouraged them to take action. Our guest speakers are Irish activists, thinkers & campaigners who come to share their personal stories about their motivations, their experiences and their thoughts about local & global justice issues. The guest speaker for our February book club is Lynn Ruane, an independent senator, serving in Seanad Éireann since 2016, and a former president of Trinity College Dublin's Students' Union. She has chosen 'Gang Leader for a Day' by Sudhir Venkatesh as her book of the month.
There will be €5 entry fee on the night with funds going to a charity of Lynn's choice.
Come along to Books Upstairs at 6pm on Monday 18th February; all are welcome!
