Friends of the Library Honor Author

Distinguished Author Colum McCann signing books, with Library Dean Charles Kratz looking on.

The University’s Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library, in collaboration with the Schemel Forum, honored best-selling author Colum McCann with the 2014 Royden B. Davis, S.J., Distinguished Author Award. McCann has been called a “poetic realist,” a gifted writer who is adept at combining historical figures and situations with fictional characters. 

At the event, McCann read and discussed sections from two of his best-selling novels, “Let the Great World Spin” and “TransAtlantic.” He also talked about growing up in a middle class family in a Dublin suburb. “I actually had the worst thing that you could have as a novelist growing up — I had a happy childhood,” he said. 

The annual event supports the Friends of the Library Endowment Fund.
