What you'll learn in this history lesson:

“Talking about New York is a way of talking about the world,” Pulitzer Prize-winning author Colson Whitehead writes in The Colossus of New York (2004). One of today’s most unpredictable writers, Whitehead’s work crisscrosses genres from his debut novel The Intuitionist (1999), a noir detective story, to zombie thriller Zone One (2011) and, most recently, The Underground Railroad (2016). Still, he returns again and again to New York, his native city, as an anchor to grapple with universal questions and timeless themes. As part of our annual Jeffe Distinguished Lectures in Urban History, Whitehead discusses his deep engagement with the history of New York City in his novels and non-fiction.

Reception and book signing to follow.

This program is part of our annual Robert A. and Elizabeth R. Jeffe Distinguished Lectures in Urban History series, in which leading observers apply insights from disciplines including history, archaeology, sociology, and architecture to examine the evolution of New York City's five boroughs.
