Details

Co-sponsored by the Humanities Center and the College of Arts and Sciences in partnership with Warwick’s bookstore. 

Bestselling author of the novels TransAtlanticLet the Great World Spin and Zoli, among others, McCann shares his latest work, Apeirogon, named for a shape with a countably infinite number of sides. He crafts Apeirogon out of a universe of fictional and nonfictional material, crossing centuries and continents, stitching together time, art, history, nature and politics in a tale both heartbreaking and hopeful. 

Tickets are $30 and include one signed copy of Apeirogon (or $40 for two tickets and one signed copy). Tickets are available at http://bit.ly/usd-mccann.
