NYPL “Conversation from the Cullman Center” October events
The New York Public Library has three events coming up in our fall 2016 series of Conversation from the Cullman Center, and they all take place in October at the NYPL on 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.
As usual our events are free, but we ask that people reserve seats to guarantee seating.
- Our first event is on Thursday, October 6th at 7 p.m. with Former Fellows STEVE PINCUS and KEITH GESSEN. They will be talking about Pincus’s new book, The Heart of the Declaration: The Founders’ Case for an Activist Government, which argues that the politically radioactive concerns of 2016 – immigration, income inequality, economic stimulus, austerity, the national debt, government size, trade – were precisely those that concerned the Founders 240 years ago.

- Our second event is on Thursday, October 13th at 7 p.m. with Former Fellow RUTH FRANKLIN and New Yorker editor Dorothy Wickenden. They will be discussing Franklin’s biography, Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life. Drawing on previously undiscovered correspondence and dozens of interviews, Franklin explores Jackson’s immense talent in light of her damaged childhood and troubled marriage.
