* Update: the Colum McCann reading at Memorial Chapel has been CANCELLED. *
Come to Memorial Chapel this Wednesday to see author Colum McCann, 2012 Annie Sonnenblick Lecturer.
McCann comes to campus to deliver the Annie Sonnenblick lecture, a major annual event that brings a distinguished literary figure to campus each year.
Colum McCann‘s most recent book, Let the Great World Spin, was described by Esquire as the first major post-9/11 novel, and received the 2009 National Book Award, an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the 2011 IMPAC International Prize. “Leave it to an Irishman,” said Dave Eggers, “to write one of the greatest-ever novels about New York.” McCann teaches in the creative writing program at Hunter College.
A book signing will follow the reading. Broad Street Books will be selling McCann’s titles.
Time: 8 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel, 221 High Street
