Patrick Radden Keefe: Say Nothing
Sunday, February 23 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm
Come to Alphabet City for an evening of reading, discussion, and book signing with The New Yorker staff writer, Patrick Radden Keefe! Keefe’s Say Nothing is a stunning, intricate narrative about a notorious killing in Northern Ireland and its devastating repercussions. This nonfiction presents a searing chronicle of the lengths that people are willing to travel in pursuit of political ideals, and the ways in which societies react in the aftermath of a long and bloody conflict. Richly atmospheric, Keefe’s portrayal of Belfast and the players on both sides of its turmoil offers a masterful and transporting account of passions, betrayals, vengeance, and anguish.
