A most enjoyable event. Colum's reading was sincere, entertaining and his voice as delightful to the ear as to the mind. He was generous with his time on stage and at the delicious reception and book signing that followed.

For fans of his writing, especially Let the Great World Spin, a delightful experience to hear readings and commentary in his wonderful voice.
