Tuesday, 2nd November 2015 //  Starting at 20:15

This has been sitting in the shop for ages, waiting to be read!

It’s  a memoir written in the forbidden language – English. At home in Dublin in the 1950s, the children of an Irish Nationalist father and a German mother who fled Nazi Germany ,are only allowed to speak either German or Irish. “Trapped in a language war”, they are the “speckled people”, they wear Aran sweaters and Lederhosen and desperately seek to belong.
