The New School and the Literary and Publishing worlds of Union Square
Led By John Reed, Lapham's Quarterly
John Reed–acclaimed novelist, native New Yorker, and preëminent historian of the New School-leads a tour through the the intellectual, literary and publishing worlds of Union Square past and present. Major publishing giants have come and gone, risen and fallen in Union Square and environs, including Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, Grove, and many more. Join Reed and Lapham’s Quarterly for a trip through time and cultural landmarks known and unknown, including The Players’ Club, the old and present-day New School, and the place where Hannah Arendt ate lunch.
