June / July 2013

On June 10, at 8:30 p.m. (EST) readers in the tri-state area will be treated to a half-hour of veteran newspaper columnist and novelist Jimmy Breslin on what it means to be Irish, what makes him write, the responsibilities of a journalist, fiction vs. journalism, and preferring criminals to politicians.

The half hour with Breslin is a preview of the highly anticipated Irish Writers in America series by CUNY TV, the television station of the City University of New York. The series, currently in post-production, will feature 23 Irish and Irish American authors, including John Banville, Billy Collins, Roddy Doyle, Anne Enright, Pete Hamill, William Kennedy, Dennis Lehane, Colum McCann, Alice McDermott, Edna O’Brien and more.

The preview will also feature interviews with novelist Colm Tóibín, who was just nominated for a Tony Award for the Broadway adaptation of his novella The Testament of Mary.

To watch, tune in to CUNY’s broadcast Channel, 25.3. Or, for viewers in New York City, Channel 75. Irish Writers in America – Jimmy Breslin and Colm Tóibín will be repeated during daytime broadcasts throughout the week of June 10. Visit www.cuny.tv for more information.
