Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes, 'Tis); Nuala O'Faolain (Are You Somebody?, My Dream of You); and Colum McCann (Dancer, Songdogs) will discuss their work and the complexity of modern Irish identity in the context of James Joyce's famous line about silence, exile, and cunning. This discussion will be moderated by Paul Holdengräber, Director of LIVE from the NYPL. Tickets on sale Wednesday, February 23 at 10am.

This event is co-sponsored by the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers.
