Barry McCrea

Professor McCrea is scholar of comparative literature and a novelist, whose research encompasses modern literature in English, French, Irish, Italian, and Spanish.

Colum McCann
Colum McCann is an acclaimed author from Ireland. His novel Let the Great World Spin (2011) won the National Book Award in the US, as well as several international literary prizes. Other books, also award-winning, include Thirteen Ways of Looking, Transatlantic, Zoli, and Dancer. His latest book, Apeirogon, is set in the Middle East. Named for a shape with an infinite yet countable number of sides, it is the story of two fathers—one Israeli, one Palestinian—each grieving the loss of a child to violence. By recognizing the loss that connects them, they join together and work for peace.
