colum_mccann.jpgAs a follow-up to Bryan’s post about Colum McCann’s new novel Let the Great World Spin, which I’m also looking forward to checking out once I’ve finished with the papers from my summer class, I just wanted to note that McCann will be giving a reading at the Union Square Barnes and Noble next Tuesday night, June 30, at 7:00 p.m. [Click here for info.]

If you can’t make it then, you can also catch him at the Bryant Park Outdoor Reading Room (42nd Street between 5th & 6th Avenues) on July 8 at 12:30 p.m.

What’s more, he seems to be sharing the stage with Joseph O’Neill, author of last year’s Netherland, which Bryan mentioned in yesterday’s post.

Tomorrow I’ll post about another recently released novel set in Gotham — one that promises to be less serious — that I’m looking forward to reading in July.
