Christodora Book Talk

Tim Murphy’s Christodora follows a diverse set of characters whose fates intertwine around an iconic building in Manhattan’s East Village, the Christodora. The Christodora is home to Milly and Jared, a privileged young couple with artistic ambitions. Their neighbor, Hector, a celebrated AIDS activist turned lonely addict, becomes connected to Milly and Jared’s lives in ways none of them can anticipate. As the counterculture residents of the 1980s give way to the hipsters of the 2000s and they, in turn, to the wealthy residents of the glass-towered city of the 2020s, enormous changes rock the personal lives of our East Villagers. Moving kaleidoscopically from the Tompkins Square Riots and AIDS activism to the New York City of the 2020’s, Christodora brings to life the ever-changing city itself.This event is the concluding meeting of the first-ever Village Book Club, where members read and discussed Christodora together over the course of the summer. The book club topics will be generally discussed, but the event will be great for people not in the book club, too.
