“One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by.” — Jeannette Walls, "The Glass Castle"


Travelling may be off limits for a while but escapism is what we need this Summer of 2020. Staycation or backyard, no matter where you are this summer, you will need a captivating page-turner to keep you company and help you forget about COVID times.

Cavan County Library’s Summer Reading List 2020 – our 16th edition – will help you on your journey! From Limerick to Trinidad, from Paris to Faha , you can let your imagination run wild and celebrate a diversity of authors and writing styles that will help you on your way to embracing the new ‘normal’  Summer of 2020!

We have included the new titles by Irish authors Niall Williams, Rachel English, Roisin Meaney, Sebastian Barry, Lucy Foley to name a few, as well as 4 titles ‘as gaeilge’ for all you gaelgeoirí out there!
