The Write Stuff - Maeve Binchy

Maeve Binchy, one of Ireland’s most popular writers, was a best-selling author who sold more than 40 million books worldwide. She wrote 16 novels, four collections of short stories, a play and a novella. Binchy was best known for her humorous take on small-town life in Ireland, her descriptive characters, her interest in human nature and her often clever surprise endings. Several of her works — including Circle of Friends and Tara Road — were turned into films. Binchy died on 30 July 2012. She was 72.
Most of Binchy’s works are in the library's collection. To visit her website click here.
