Book Event with author Suzanne Strempek Shea and Mags Riordan
Suzanne Strempek Shea’s latest book, "This is Paradise: An Irish mother’s grief, an African village’s plight and the medical clinic that brought fresh hope to both," is the story of the Billy Riordan Memorial Clinic in Cape Maclear, Malawi, Africa. Mags Riordan, of Dingle, Co. Kerry, founded the clinic in 2004 in honor of her son, who had drowned in Lake Malawi five years before.
Strempek Shea and Riordan will discuss their work at a book reading event on Sunday, October 19. The 2 p.m. event at the Elms College Alumnae Library basement lobby is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Proceeds from the book are being donated to the Billy Riordan Memorial Clinic in Malawi.
