Virtual NYPL Program 2/9: The Interconnected World of Postcards

Meredith Mann Announcement
Subject Fields
Archival Science, Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Cultural History / Studies, Humanities, Research and Methodology

Please join us on Wednesday, February 9th at 1pm EST for The New York Public Library's next Work/Cited program.

In this episode, NYPL's Elizabeth Cronin will be speaking with writer Lydia Pyne about her book Postcards: The Rise and Fall of the World's First Social Network.  So much more than notes that say, “Wish you were here!,” postcards are fundamentally about creating personal connections easily and inexpensively: links between people, places, and beliefs.  Elizabeth and Lydia will discuss how these personal connections can be traced within the Library's Picture Collection.

Work/Cited showcases the latest scholarship supported by the rich collections of the Library with a behind-the-scenes look at how the finished product was inspired, researched, and created.
