Stage Interview and Q & A With Elizabeth Withey
A traveller, journalist, novelist, literary critic and professor, Colm Tóibín has had many identities. And it is the search for identity—whether national, creative, or sexual—that is at the heart of the conflicted characters in Tóibín’s literary fiction, from the Argentinian-born son of a British widow in The Story of the Night (1997) to the Henry James of The Master (2004), to the namesake of his new novel, Nora Webster, who struggles to reclaim herself in the wake of devastating sorrow.
Join the acclaimed winner of the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for an engaging onstage interview with Edmonton Journal columnist Elizabeth Withey.
An audience Q & A session and book signing will follow.
