NBPL Foundation: Library Live - William Finnegan

The New Yorker

William Finnegan is a staff writer at The New Yorker. He will speak about Barbarian Days, his 2016 Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir. More than just a recounting of great waves discovered and ridden, it is a story of family, friendships, love, coming-of-age and the gradual mastering of an exacting, little-understood art, told with such lyricism and insight that even non-surfers will be swept along for the ride.
