Event description

Description

Please join Glucksman Ireland House NYU and internationally bestselling author John Connolly for a reception and screening of Laurel and Hardy's short films in celebration of Connolly’s latest novel, he.

John Connolly conjures the Golden Age of Hollywood in this moving, literary portrait of two men who find their true selves in a comedic partnership. When Stan Laurel was paired with Oliver Hardy, affectionately known as Babe, the history of comedy—not to mention their personal and professional lives—was altered forever.

There will be a screening of several short films highlighting the best of Laurel and Hardy’s contributions to classical American cinema at Glucksman Ireland House NYU, with a discussion of this extraordinary novel and a reception to follow. Connolly, the first non-American writer to win the US Shamus award, and the first Irish writer to be awarded the Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America, is the author of more than twenty books, including the Charlie Parker mysteries and The Book of Lost Things.

Presented in collaboration with Irish Screen America.
