In his new book The New Yorkers, veteran New York Times journalist Sam Roberts has created a living, organic history of the world’s most exceptional city through 31 little-known yet transformational inhabitants. Whose stories should the city remember, and who have we forgotten? In this illustrated lecture -- his official book launch -- Roberts will introduce us to the first woman to appear nude in a motion picture, becoming the face of Civic Fame as Miss Manhattan; the couple whose soirée ended the Gilded Age with an embarrassing bang; the Jewish constable that defined policing in New York; and the husband and wife who invented the modern celebrity talk show.

This program is part of Capturing the Changing City, a series of conversations with artists, writers, historians, and other notable New Yorkers about how they seek to represent the New York scene on the page, film, canvas, and beyond.
