Join us for a special evening with Colum McCann and Leah Garrett as they discuss McCann’s novel, APEIROGON, the 2020 National Jewish Book Award for Fiction. Released in February 2020, Apeirogon has also been published and widely praised in the Arab-speaking world. The book was inspired by the account of two fathers McCann met at a program for his non-profit story exchange group Narrative 4, Apeirogon tells the story of how both men—one Israeli, one Palestinian—lose their young daughters to violence in the ongoing conflict in the region. At its core, Apeirogon is a testament to how a person can channel the worst kind of grief into meaningful action for the world. It is a universal story, from which countless other stories unfold, crossing centuries and continents, stitching time, art, history, nature, and politics together in a tale both heartbreaking and hopeful.
