This evening is now full. 

Join us for an intimate evening with Colm Tóibín discussing his latest novel, The Magician. “Subtle and substantial”, Tóibín’s work captures the life of Thomas Mann in a “symphonic and moving novel [which] humanizes him further” (The New York Times). This evening is hosted by Jacob Weisberg and Deborah Needleman.
