Valiant Gentlemen by Sabina MurrayHistorical fiction at its best. In prose that is darkly humorous and alive with detail, this is the story of the friendship between humanitarian and Irish patriot Roger Casement and his closest friend, Herbert Ward. Their journey begins with their adventurous youth in Congo, through four decades and many continents and ultimately leads them on vastly different tracks, one to fight for England and one to fight alongside the Germans to help free Ireland from British rule. Both men are forced to confront notions of love and betrayal in a story that is both tragic and riveting.Join us in Study Room 1 on the 2nd floor at 1:30 for a discussion. Registration is not required and all are welcome!
