Join us for the story of Supreme City: How Jazz Age Manhattan Gave Birth to Modern America (Simon & Schuster, May 2014) with author and historian Donald Miller. The fervent intertwining of commerce and culture that characterized this era propelled Midtown Manhattan’s emergence as the focal point of New York City—and the epicenter of a new America. Donald Miller tells the remarkable tale of Manhattan’s growth and transformation in the 1920s through stories of the brilliant people—mostly ambitious outsiders—who drove the city’s evolution. Co-sponsored by the Art Deco Society of New York.
