On Friday, March 15, 2024, at 7:00 PM, Colum McCann and Diane Foley will engage in a thought-provoking discussion at The Wharf. Diane Foley, founder of the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation, will share her remarkable journey from confronting her son's killer, a member of ISIS, to advocating for kidnapped and wrongfully detained individuals worldwide. McCann, a celebrated author, delves into these themes in his latest work, "American Mother," exploring forgiveness, grief, and the resilience of the human spirit. Margaret Collins, Washington Bureau Chief for Bloomberg News, will moderate the conversation. Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
