Bestselling author and staff writer at The New Yorker Patrick Radden Keefe delivers a talk on “Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland,” his true crime narrative on the bitter conflict in Northern Ireland and its aftermath. He uses the abduction and murder case of Jean McConville, a 38-year-old mother of ten who was dragged from her Belfast home by masked intruders, as a starting point for the tale of a society wracked by violent guerrilla warfare, a war whose consequences have never been reckoned with.
