Curated by Paul Holdengräber, LIVE from the NYPL is The New York Public Library's flagship ticketed event series, offering programs that embody the institution's mission to educate, inform, and inspire. To watch full programs, visit www.nypl.org/live.
Watch as curators, librarians, and special guests, such as chef Lidia Bastianich and pianist Margaret Leng Tan, share their passion for the treasures of our remarkable collections. Travel the Spuyten Duyvil Creek in 1777, hear music recorded 100 years ago on wax cylinders, marvel at rare 1920s Japanese comics and other pop ephemera, enter the turnstile at the 193940 New York Worlds Fair, hit the road with the Beats, and witness how photographers have engaged the world from the 19th century up to the present-day work of photojournalist Stephen Dupont.
