During the 1970s, sectarian violence between Irish Republicans and British loyalists tore apart Northern Ireland. Known as The Troubles, the brutality involved bombs, knee-capping, and killings. Many civilians were targeted, including, in 1972, Jean McConville, a Belfast mother of ten. Keefe, an award-winning investigative journalist who writes for The New Yorker, tells McConville’s story in unforgettable detail. But as chilling as the scene of her abduction—with her children hanging on as she was dragged away by members of the IRA—and the discovery of her bones in 2003, is the fact that while The Troubles seem a thing of the past after the Good Friday Agreement, their root causes have yet to be addressed and the North remains a place of festering tensions.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
