Green-Wood will host a book talk and reception for the legendary Elizabeth Barlow Rogers as she discusses her book, Green Metropolis: The Extraordinary Landscapes of New York City as Nature, History, and Design. Rogers, who launched the restoration of Central Park in the 1980s and saved it from a state of near ruin, will introduce Green-Wood visitors to seven remarkable green spaces in and around New York City, giving the history—both natural and human—of how they have been transformed over time. Copies of her book will be available for signing and sale after the program.
Free. Space is limited. Reservations are recommended. To make an online reservation or to find out more information, visit www.green-wood.com/toursevents or call 718-210-3080.
