Take this summer's coolest walking tour with Tompkins Square Library manager Corinne Neary and street photographer Michael Paul. Once the most densely crowded district in America, the East Village started as a true melting pot of immigrants. It was New York City's first racially integrated neighborhood. Eastern European Jews, Germans, Italians, Irish, Greeks, Hungarians, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, Puerto Ricans, Muslims, Indians, Koreans and Dominicans all made a new life here. Tompkins Square Park is a place where different cultures share their heritage: art, dance, food, fashion and music. After the Civil War, Tompkins Square Park was the only major open space for immigrants to gather and relax on the east side of Manhattan between Union Square and City Hall.

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming. Gillian Flynn has published three novels, Sharp Objects, Dark Places, and Gone Girl, all three of which have been adapted for film or television. She was formerly a television critic for Entertainment Weekly
