The Female Flaneur: Reclaiming the City

The 19th-century symbol of modern city life was always a man. How do women on their own negotiate the city streets? From New York to Paris, Tokyo to Lagos, and Nairobi to San Francisco, three acclaimed writers discuss the perils and pleasures of navigating the city. With Lauren Elkin, Vivian Gornick, and Sarah Ladipo Manyika. Moderated by Joanna Scutts.

This event is free, reservations available via the “buy tickets” button.
