Contemporary Writers on a Lost Greenwich Village: A discussion with authors Vivian Gornick and Sarah Schulman
Chroniclers of an ever-changing New York City, Vivian Gornick (The Odd Woman and the City) and Sarah Schulman (The Gentrification of the Mind) join for a conversation on writing and reading New York on the occasion of the release of Schulman’s new novel, The Cosmopolitans.
Set in the Village in 1958, The Cosmopolitans harmonizes two classics, Balzac’s Cousin Bette and James Baldwin’s Another Country. The esteemed writers and cultural critics will discuss the literary Village and its many changes in the last half-century through the lens of both their current books.
Copies of Ms. Schulman’s books will be available for purchase and signing.
