Author Reading | American Hotel: The Waldorf-Astoria and the Making of a Century (online)


Historian David Freeland recounts the history of not just an American hotel, but, arguably, the American hotel. From the opening as the Waldorf at its first location at Fifth Avenue at 33rd Street in 1893, then more than doubling in size in 1897 into the Waldorf-Astoria, the hostelry rose to prominence on the local, national, and international stage. Opening for business on October 1, 1931, the new uptown Waldorf-Astoria struggled through the Depression, but rose to unparalleled prominence in the postwar years. Functioning like an American palace, the Waldorf served as a favored venue for United Nations diplomats and the hotel of choice for American Presidents until its shuttering in 2017. Freeland is also the author of Automats, Taxi Dances and Vaudeville: Excavating Manhattan's Lost Places of Leisure and Ladies of Soul.

Author Reading | Soul of the Hurricane: The Perfect Storm and an Accidental Sailor (online)


Nelson Simon's book is an unlikely and harrowing true account of his experience sailing into Hurricane Grace. It was October 1991, and Simon didn’t want to sign up as a last-minute crew member to transport a Norwegian schooner from Brooklyn to Bermuda. But one thing led to another, and there he was. What did it matter that he had practically no sailing experience? The eight other crew members had plenty—they just needed an extra pair of hands. What could possibly go wrong?
