About the Program

Writers Bloc Presents® at the Skirball! Apeirogon, the latest novel by National Book Award winner Colum McCann, takes inspiration from the unlikely friendship between two fathers who have lost their daughters to violence: seventh-generation Israeli Rami Elhanan and former Palestinian resistance fighter Bassam Aramin. Bound by grief, the men develop a profound connection built on their shared history and desire for peace. Listen as McCann discusses this epic work with author and former Los Angeles Times book critic David Ulin, as they are joined on stage by Elhanan and Aramin.

A book signing follows the program. Books will be distributed at will call on the night of the program. Additional books available for purchase.
