Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Author Reading | The Truth About Men: What Men and Women Need to Know


New York Times bestselling author and Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin speaks out frankly and openly about why men behave the way they do and what everyone—men and women alike—need to know about it. We hear it all the time. Men cheat. Men love power. Men love sex. Men are greedy. Men are dogs. But is this the truth about men? In this groundbreaking book, DeVon Franklin dishes the real truth about men by making the compelling case that men aren’t dogs but all men share the same struggle. He uses the metaphor of a dog that needs training as a way to explore why behavior persists in men that can lead them to act against their vows, their integrity and even their character. DeVon provides the manual for how men can change, both on a personal and a societal level by providing practical solutions for helping men learn how to resist temptation, how to practice self-control and how to love. He argues the same discipline that drives men in their professional lives needs to be applied to their private lives. DeVon is also transparent about the challenges he faces daily as he endeavors to “Master the Dog” within. But The Truth About Men isn’t just for men. DeVon tells female readers everything they need to know about men. He offers women a real-time understanding of how men’s struggle effects them, insights that can help them navigate their relationships with men and information on how to heal from the damage that some misbehaving men may have inflicted. This book is a raw, informative, and compelling look at an issue that threatens to tear our society apart yet it offers a positive way forward for men and women alike. Restrictions may apply.

Author Reading | A People’s Future of the United States: envisioning new futures for America


Some of today’s most imaginative writers of speculative fiction challenge old narratives of oppression by envisioning new futures for America. Featuring: Maria Dahvana Headley N.K. Jemisin Alice Sola Kim Victor LaValle Sam J. Miller Howard Zinn’s seminal 1980 work A People’s History of the United States challenged our understanding of the country’s past by uncovering its darker truths; nearly 40 years later A People’s Future of the United States challenges our visions of tomorrow with stories about freedom, love, and justice. While Zinn helped give voice to many whose histories had been overlooked—like the working poor and immigrant laborers—this new collection of stories restores a sense of justice to the generations of their offspring who have in turn been deprived of the right to create futures of their own design. A People’s Future of the United States comes to life as one of its editors, Victor LaValle, speaks with four contributors— Maria Dahvana Headley, N.K. Jemisin, Alice Sola Kim, and Sam J. Miller—about the fantasies and projections for the future of the country they have dared to imagine.

Lecture | Naturalizing the French Language


How does the king’s language become the mother tongue of a nation? This talk will explore the cultural politics of the French language around 1540, examining the famous Edict of Villers-Cotterêts—the law issued by François I that codifies the langage maternel francoys as the exclusive language of justice in France—alongside the visual aesthetic of Fontainebleau and the phonetic spelling reforms of Jacques Peletier du Mans in order to understand how French becomes “naturalized” as a national idiom. Speaker Katie Chenoweth is Assistant Professor of French at Princeton University. Her research focuses on the history of books and other media, with a concentration on the sixteenth century. Her first book, The Prosthetic Tongue: Printing Technology and the Rise of the French Language, is forthcoming in the Material Texts series with the University of Pennsylvania Press.
