New York City First Lady Chirlane McCray, the Gracie Mansion Conservancy, NYPL President Dr. Anthony Marx, and other distinguished panelists for a discussion of Ann Petry’s masterful novel “The Street”, the newest Gracie Book Club selection.
Moderated by Schomburg Director Kevin Young, the conversation will explore the 1945 book that traces the life of a young black woman and her spirited struggle to raise her son amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s.
