Editor reviews

In this evening at Symphony Space in New York City, host Isaiah Sheffer welcomes the two Irish writers (and friends) Colum McCann and Colm Tóibín for a wide-ranging conversation on the nature of the immigrant experience and the process of writing. The actor and musician Michael Cerveris performs dramatic readings from McCann's Let the Great World Spin and Tóibín's Brooklyn, both novels of Irish immigrants coming to New York at very different times. Afterward, the authors discuss the stories behind their books and share thoughts about Ireland, New York, each other's work, and what it's like to be "a citizen of elsewhere".
