Join us for the first Bryant Park Book Club. Author Samantha Hunt takes us back in time with a magical historical-novel bridging history, electromagnetism, and a special pigeon in Bryant Park. ‘The Invention of Everything Else’ luminously resurrects one of the greatest scientists of all time, Nikola Tesla, while magically transporting us to an early twentieth-century New York City thrumming with energy, wonder, and possibility.
Formed in Brooklyn, Piñataland is the creation of David Wechsler and Doug Stone, performers/songwriters who set out to form a new band centered around their fascination for the stories and sounds of the Weird Old World. A performance will follow the reading.
