Real People, Imagined Stories

These novels are so fascinating that it’s easy to forget they’re based on the lives of very real historical figures. Amy Brill (The Movement of Stars), Colum McCann (TransAtlantic), and Montague Kobbé (The Night of the Rambler) examine the lesser-known stories of the first female astronomer, a fifteen-hour revolution in Anguilla, and three generations of Irish women overshadowed by their male counterparts. Moderated by Jeffrey Lependorf (CLMP).

This event will be held at St. Francis College, Auditorium, 180 Remsen Street (between Court and Clinton streets).
