for our first event to celebrate the launch of
Footprints in New York: Tracing the Lives of Four Centuries of New Yorkers
STH RE:CREATION CENTER
748 Union Street at Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn
We are pleased to be the featured authors at the kick-off event for The Salon @ Spoke the Hub, a monthly evening of readings, plays, music, film, and informal performance curated by Chiwoniso Kaitano-Price and Donnaldson Brown.
We will be presenting an illustrated talk highlighting some of our favorite stories from Footprints in New York, particularly ones with a focus on Brooklyn's history, from the Dutch colonial era to the unification of the five boroughs. There will be a Q&A following the talk, and books will be available for sale and signing. A cash bar will also be available for libations. More details about this and other upcoming events atwww.footprintsinnewyork.com/events.html.
