The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers is a fellowship program for creative writers, academics, and independent scholars who benefit from using NYPL’s research collections. The Center’s public programs feature past and current fellows discussing their work.

Except for the programs on September 17th and 30th, all events are free, but you must reserve seats: click on the event of your choice and follow the instructions.  We generally overbook to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 10 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.

You may reach us with questions at cswevents@nypl.org
