A Celebration of William Trevor


On November 5, 2018, Hermione Lee, Yiyun Li and Colum McCann celebrated the life and work of master storyteller William Trevor, on the occasion of his Last Stories, published posthumously that year. Lee read from the novella Reading Turgenev; McCann the short story “Attracta;” and Li read from the story “The Piano Tuner’s Wives,” with a recording of Trevor himself reading the same story (from a 1997 92Y appearance) closing the evening.
