Tonight, as part of the Upper North Side reading series at 92Y Tribeca, our own Tori Schacht will be moderating a discussion with Canadian author Michael Crumney. In her review of Crumney’s new novel, Galore, Schacht wrote, “Galore is epic; it contains multitudes. A historical novel in the best sense of the term, it’s the antithesis of a stodgy set piece. In writing a novelistic yarn spanning more than one hundred years in wild Newfoundland, the Canadian writer Michael Crummey acts as literary historicist: interrogating the way we internalize time, “remember” the past, and perceive changes in the world and in ourselves. It’s a novel of total fidelity between word and world, the kind of novel that invents its own language, that teaches us how to read it, and that makes our own words feel inadequate.

The event is at 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson Street, and will start at 7pm. You can check out more info at the 92Y site.

The event is co-presented by the Consulate General of Canada in New York, making this our first, and hopefully not last, collaboration with the great country of Canada (shout out to our resident-Northwoman, Editor Amanda Shubert).

See you there!
