Sold Out!

Wednesday October 11

6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM

Loisaida Center, 710 East 9th Street

Julia Wertz, the cartoonist behind Drinking at the Movies and The Infinite Wait, presents this illustrated discussion of her newest book, Tenements, Towers & Trash: An Unconventional, Illustrated History of New York City, which is an expansion of her monthly history comics for The New Yorker. Featuring then-and-now cityscapes and lots of charming details, Wertz illustrates (literally) how the city has changed over the last 200 years, chronicles its lesser known bemusing stories, and explores abandoned and forgotten locations. True to her comedic voice, Wertz covers a variety of NYC topics with irreverence and humor. Purchase Wertz’s book at the event and have her sign your copy after the talk.

Free. Reservations required.
