Program Description


Please join us for a presentation by Colum McCann, author of the All Pikes Peak Read selection Transatlantic. Colum is the author of six novels and three collections of stories. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, he has been the recipient of many international honours, including the National Book Award. The territory of McCann’s work is international in scope and geography, and his topics have ranged from homeless people in the subway tunnels of New York, to the troubles in Northern Ireland, to the effects of 9/11, to a poetic examination of the life and culture of the Roma in Europe. A book signing will follow, and books will be available for purchase.
