Sunday at the Library: The Island at the Center of the World
April 24, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
The Friends of the Rosendale Library Invites you to Read and Discuss The Island at the Center of the World by Russell Shorto
“I’m a strong believer in the idea that meaning is best conveyed via narrative, which means focusing on individuals and their struggles, and the story I tell centers on two men and their very different ideas about what the wilderness island called Manhattan might become. (Hint on the outcome: neither man got his wish, but both ended up influencing American history in startling and profound ways.)” Russell Shorto
“…a book that will permanently alter the way we regard our collective past.” New York Times
“…a masterpiece of storytelling and first rate intellectual history.” Wall Street Journal
