Shifting Sides of Conflict - Colum McCann's Apeirogon

Shifting Sides of Conflict: Colum McCann’s Apeirogon

October 24 at 5pm

Irish-America author Colum McCann brings us Apeirogon, the eagerly awaited follow up to his 2009 international success, Let the Great World Spin, in 2009. Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize, Apeirogon accounts the real-life story of an unlikely friendship between two men in conflict. A Palestinian and an Israeli are brought together by shared traumas, and joint motivation to transform their grief into a weapon for peace. McCann will speak to the process of uncovering these men’s complex and moving stories, and how his unprecedented access to their lives has translated around the world.
