Special thanks to all IAW&A members and friends who attended the cocktail party in honor of Colum McCann winning the 2009 National Book Award for LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN. The event took place at Glass House Tavern in Times Square and was hosted by MARY PAT KELLY, a co-director of IAW&A. Author THOMAS KELLY introduced Colum, who read a few short passages from the book. There was food and drink and much spirited conversation. It’s not often that we get to toast one of our own winning such an important honor. It was a fun event. MEMBERS: check in regualry with the IAW&A Facebook page and this page for news of future events.
