Lower East Side Oral Histories:
A Book Talk by Nina Howes & Eric Ferrara
Lower East Side Oral Histories is a compilation of 25 unique interviews conducted by Nina Howes and edited by the Lower East Side History Project’s Eric Ferrara. This book documents the memories of 25 people from diverse backgrounds—Jewish, Italian, Puerto Rican, Ukrainian, African-American, Muslim—who experienced life in one of the 20th century’s most vibrant and complex neighborhoods. From childhood memories of pushcarts and nickel-baths to observations of the constantly changing face of the district, discover the Lower East Side and East Village through the eyes and voices of the people who have witnessed much of the history that made our neighborhood so legendary. Meet the authors, as well as the interviewees whose life stories and personal photos were documented for the project. Lower East Side Oral Histories will be available for sale and signing.
