The event will be held on Thursday, March 17 from 7-9 p.m. at the Commander’s Mansion, Arsenal on the Charles, 441 Talcott Ave., Watertown.
This special Spotlight Symposium event will begin with a private reception with Colm Toibin, author of The Testament of Mary, featuring a variety of appetizers, a complimentary spirits tasting with Boston Harbor Distillery, and desert provided by Terry O’Reilly’s Irish Pub.

During the interview, we’ll explore some of Mr. Toibin’s other works, including his highly acclaimed novel Brooklyn, now a major motion picture being considered for three Academy Awards.
