Join us for a special conversation with author Colum McCann on his hybrid novel, Apeirogon.
McCann’s most ambitious work to date, Apeirogon—named for a shape with a countably infinite number of sides—is a tour de force concerning friendship, love, loss, and belonging. Following two grieving fathers—one Israeli, one Palestinian—as they travel the physical and emotional roads that lead them to each other and are connected in their attempt to use grief as a weapon for peace. We are honored to be joined by McCann to discuss grief, storytelling, and the power of empathy and connection.
