A Festival favorite, these intimate salon-style readings offer audience members a glimpse into refugee and immigrant lives in the late 19th and early 20th century. This year, the Tenement Museum features newly opened apartments occupied by Jewish, Chinese, and Puerto Rican families in the post-World War II period.
Each audience member will hear two authors in different apartments, with selections made on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 6pm, and audience members should check in no later than 6:15pm. The event will be followed by a reception and book signing in the Tenement Museum Bookshop at 9pm. With André Aciman, Ping Chong, Muna Tseng, Esmeralda Santiago, Penny Arcade, Ibi Zoboi, Lauren Hilgers, Jenny Zhang, Akwaeke Emezi and more to come.
