Join us for a journey through New York City and its history, as this celebrated writer, creator, and scholar shares images and stories behind the naming of its places. Joshua Jelly-Schapiro’s latest work reveals the marks left on the city by the native Lenape, Dutch settlers, British invaders, and a successive wave of immigrants. Drawing on his background in cultural geography, he excavates the wealth of tales embedded throughout the five boroughs and illuminates the power of naming to shape experience and our sense of place. Come with questions, submitting your own family’s history as you register, for possible discussion in the extended Q&A time.
