Colum McCann

Virtual Event

October 22, 2020 AT 7:30 PM

Colum McCann is the author of National Book Award winner Let the Great World Spin, as well as the novels TransAtlantic, Zoli, Dancer, This Side of Brightness, and Songdogs. McCann’s new novel, Apeirogon, tells the real-life stories of two fathers coping with the loss of their children in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Characteristic of McCann’s writing are the leaps in time and geography, and a vast reach that bestows on his work a quiet power and magnitude. But from these leaps, McCann returns, always, to the very core of our human experience—how we relate to one another and how our actions can shift the very foundation of a person’s life.

Proceeds from this event benefit Hennepin County Library.

Ticket sales for this lecture closed at 4:00 p.m. on the afternoon of the event.
