Bookfest -- Keynote: An Evening With Colm Toibin, Sat. March 24 8pm

Colm Tóibín was born in Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland, and graduated from University College in Dublin in 1975. He then headed to Barcelona, the city that later inspired his first novel, "The South," and the non-fiction work "Homage to Barcelona," both published in 1990.


During the 1980s, he worked as a journalist, first in Ireland and then in Argentina, the Sudan and Egypt. He is the author of several works of fiction, including "The Heather Blazing" (1992), "The Story of the Night" (1996), "The Blackwater Lightship" (1999), which was on the short list for the Booker Prize, and "Brooklyn" (2009), winner of the Costa Book Award. The New York Times named his 2004 novel, "The Master," one of the ten most notable books of the year. His short story collection include "Mothers and Sons" (2006), and his non-fiction books include "Bad Blood: A Walk Along the Irish Border" (1994) and "The Sign of the Cross: Travels in Catholic Europe" (1994).
