The National Book Award–winning and bestselling author of Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann, will introduce his latest epic novel Apeirogon and the global network Narrative 4 in discussion with Harvard lecturer in Slavic languages and literatures, Veronika Tuckerova.

Wednesday, January 27, 7 pm EST

Live on Zoom / RSVP HERE

    The Václav Havel Library Foundation is delighted to invite you to the first conversation in their winter/spring 2021 series "Havel Conversations on Zoom" in which writer Colum McCann, the National Book Award–winning and bestselling author of Let the Great World Spin, will introduce his latest epic novel Apeirogon and the global educational organization Narrative 4 in discussion with Veronika Tuckerova, Harvard lecturer in Slavic languages and literatures. 

The territory of McCann’s work is international in scope and geography – 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. He is known as a writer of style and substance, hailed by critics and readers alike. McCann has been recognized as a “literary risk-taker,” a writer who is known to tackle the dark in order to get through to the light – “any sort of light, however compromised” – on the far side.

“The one true democracy we have is storytelling. It goes across borders, boundaries, genders, wealth, race — everyone has a story to tell.”

- Colum McCann, co-founder & president of Narrative 4

  • The lecture will be presented live online on ZOOM. 
  • RSVP through Eventbrite to receive a Zoom link. 
  • It will be recorded and available on YouTube. 

This event is organized by Vaclav Havel Library Foundation with support of Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Association. More information HERE
