Author Event (added from Barnes & Noble)
Colum McCann
Greenlight Bookstore, Monday, May 19 at 7:30pm
Monday, May 19, 7:30 Special pre-publication paperback launch: Colum McCann presents Transatlantic

International bestselling author Colum McCann has been honored with the National Book Award, the International Dublin Impac Prize, and an Oscar nomination, among other awards, and has graced the stage at Greenlight as an interviewer. Greenlight Bookstore is now proud to welcome him to the store for the paperback launch of his own highly acclaimed novel, Transatlantic. As The New York Times Magazine observes, “What distinguishes Transatlantic from McCann’s earlier work isn’t the stunning language or the psychological acuity or the humor and imagination on display—all of that has been there before. It’s the sheer ambition, the audacity to imagine within the same novel the experience of Frederick Douglass . . . then the first nonstop trans-Atlantic flight . . . then to embody the former senator George Mitchell . . . and finally to unite these stories, to give them even larger purpose than the historical significance they already possess, by knitting through and around them the stories of four generations of women."
