Centennial: Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups with The New Yorker


May 22, 2011

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Deborah, Jonathan F. P., Samuel Priest, and Adam R. Rose Main Reading Room

Before lights out on the Centennial celebration’s Saturday night, The New Yorker will present Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups, featuring readings of three iconic works of short fiction from the magazine’s archive—including Tobias Wolff’s “Bullet in the Brain,” read by actor David Hyde Pierce; and “Dayward,” excerpted from ZZ Packer’s novel-in-progress, read by actor Anika Noni Rose.  Expect a nightcap of humor, chills, and captivating narratives interpreted by a beloved trio of voices as one New York institution salutes another.

This event is free but reservations are recommended. To reserve your spot via ShowClix, click here or call 1.888.71.TICKETS.
