Host a visitor, make a friend

During the fleadh in Ennis, many found that hosting a festival visitor was a wonderful experience and visitors loved getting to meet a local. Why not do the same for the Ennis Book Club Festival? We'd like to encourage those of you living in or around Ennis to consider opening your door to visitors . It’s a great opportunity to meet a fellow reader. We'll put your details on our website and all you need to provide is a bed (and possibly a rushed breakfast before the morning events). Payment is an individual arrangement but we would guide about €40 per person. Contact us by emailing to chat and see if it might be for you.

EBCF Recommends

The Marriage Pact by Michelle RichmondFor December the team in EBCF recommends Michelle Richmond’s The Marriage Pact. How far is too far when it comes to protecting your marriage? Find out in this relentlessly paced novel of psychological suspense for anyone who loved The Couple Next Door.

“Ranks with The Stepford Wives and Gone Girl as a terrifying look at what it really means to say ‘I do.’”—Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of The Switch

Newlyweds Alice and Jake are a picture-perfect couple. Alice, once a singer in a well-known rock band, is now a successful lawyer. Jake is a partner in an up-and-coming psychology practice. Their life together holds endless possibilities. After receiving an enticing wedding gift from one of Alice’s prominent clients, they decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as The Pact.

The goal of The Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. And most of its rules make sense. Always answer the phone when your spouse calls. Exchange thoughtful gifts monthly. Plan a trip together once per quarter. . . . 

Never mention The Pact to anyone.
