Work/Cited: Stories from the Archives of The New York Public Library
Tuesday, October 22nd
6pm

Archives are laboratories for new knowledge.  And what better way to explore this concept than to hear from three authors who have recently completed research for their books in The New York Public Library’s Brooke Russell Astor Reading Room for Manuscripts, Archives, and Rare Books?  In this panel discussion, Alicia Cheng (This Is What Democracy Looked Like: A Visual History of the Printed Ballot), Lauren Santangelo (Suffrage and the City: New York Women Battle for the Ballot) and Scott Stern (The Trials of Nina McCall: Sex, Surveillance, and the Decades-Long Government Plan to Imprison 'Promiscuous' Women) will discuss their scholarship and experience working with the Library’s special collections, including the challenges, rewards, and unexpected elements they encountered along the way. 

This program is free, but due to limited space we encourage advance registration.
