Book Discussion: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

Open to district residents only. Limit of 15 people.

Irish author McCann creates a 1970s New York, peopled by priests, prostitutes, Park Avenue socialites and Phillippe Petit on a high wire between the Twin Towers and somehow connects their stories into a gripping novel of civilization in freefall.  The gritty New York of forty years ago springs to life and these desperate tales of people just trying to survive provide great food for discussion. Sign-up for district residents begins Wednesday, April 10 at the adult reference desk.  You will receive a copy of the book and discussion questions at that time.
