Off the Page

Jane Jacobs (detail), 1960, photography by Phil Stanziola, Library of Congress

Off the Page is a literary series spotlighting authors of the best new non-fiction written about the five boroughs. Each event begins with a reception featuring a drink inspired by the evening’s book. After a reading by the author, we will host a conversation with an expert commentator on the book’s topic. The programs are inspired by the Museum's new exhibition New York at Its Core, which tells the story of NYC's 400-year history through the lens of four themes: money, density, diversity, and creativity.
