Garden Reception & Illustrated Talk: Edith Wharton’s New York
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Born in 1862 at her parents’ brownstone at 14 West 23rd Street, Edith Wharton captured the tight social world of Gilded Age New York incisively and critically in her major works, including her masterpiece, The Age of Innocence. This illustrated talk will trace Edith’s life in New York from the Flatiron district to Washington Square, discussing places she knew intimately and used as settings for her novels and stories. Join us for a unique and rare glimpse into Wharton’s New York life and into the private inner world of the Gilded Age.
Carl Raymond is a professionally licensed New York City tour guide, food historian and trained professional chef, and a Wharton specialist. He has lectured for the Metropolitan Opera Guild, The Royal Oak Foundation, the National Arts Club, Historic Royal Palaces, among others.
