Adam Gopnik | At the Strangers' Gate: Arrivals in New York

Fri, September 22, 2017 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: $15.00

In conversation with Meg Wolitzer, bestselling author of The Interestings among many novels.

A writer for The New Yorker for more than three decades, Adam Gopnik is the author of Paris to the Moon, Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life, and The Table Comes First, an “unapologetically intelligent yet charmingly witty” (The Atlantic) bite into the deeper truths of food culture. A three-time recipient of the National Magazine Award and a winner of the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting, Gopnik was decorated with the French Republic’s medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters. At the Strangers’ Gate is a memoir of his 1980s move to a peculiar New York that is both romantically familiar yet light years from today’s incarnation.

Please allow extra time to get to Parkway Central, due to extensive road work in the area.
