"Let the Great World Spin" by Colum McCann

Wednesday, July 6, 2022, 6 p.m.

In the dawning light of a late-summer morning, the people of lower Manhattan stand hushed, staring up in disbelief at the Twin Towers. It is August 1974, and a mysterious tightrope walker is running, dancing, leaping between the towers, suspended a quarter mile above the ground. In the streets below, a slew of ordinary lives become extraordinary in bestselling novelist Colum McCann’s stunningly intricate portrait of a city and its people. Winner of the National Book Award in 2009, Let the Great World Spin is a dazzlingly rich vision of the passion, pain, and promise of New York City in the 1970s.

This event will now take place at the Amerikahaus and not online—we will meet in the well-ventilated conference room on the ground floor. The room is accessible via stairs or elevator.

Attendees must furbish proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, which will be checked by the Amerikahaus Literary Circle advisor, who has set this policy, which differs somewhat from the Amerikahaus policy for visitors.
