05-03-2019 12:00:00 05-03-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York An Evening with Colson Whitehead | :00pm – 9:00pm "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 will discuss his deep engagement with the history of New York City in his novels and non-fiction. After his talk, he will be joined in conversation by The Atlantic's Hannah Giorgis. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=353346 Museum of the City of New York Museum of the City of New York
