Arvon at Home: Live Guest Reading

Reading and Q&A from Colm Tóibín via Zoom

Wednesday September 16th 2020, 7:15pm BST

Online

Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to distract, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. And so while you can’t come to us, instead we will come to you, bringing a taste of Arvon into your home one night a week. Every Wednesday evening an Arvon tutor will join us as a guest, to read from their own work and answer your questions live and in person online.

This week’s live guest reading is with Colm Tóibín on Wednesday 16 September at 7.15pm. Colm is the author of nine novels, including The MasterBrooklynThe Testament of Mary and Nora Webster. His work has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize three times, has won the Costa Novel Award and the Impac Award. His most recent novel is House of Names. He has also published two collections of stories and many works of non-fiction. Colm is currently Irene and Sidney B. Silverman Professor of the Humanities at Columbia University in New York and Chancellor of Liverpool University.

The reading and interactive Q&A will be hosted on Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.

We are more committed than ever to helping writers find inspiration, and to make space for their own creativity, no matter the setting. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table).

Cost: £5.00
