LIVE from the NYPL: PHILIP PULLMAN in conversation with Paul Holdengraber


This program has been canceled. All tickets will be refunded. Please contact or 212 930 0855 with questions.


Challenging the events of the gospels in his latest book, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Philip Pullman puts forward a compelling and plausible version of the life of Jesus. The story Pullman tells comes out of the tension within the dual nature of Jesus Christ. Parts of it read like a novel, parts like history, and parts like a fairy tale; it is a story about how stories become stories.

Philip Pullman was born in Norwich, England, in 1946. His awards include the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Book of the Year Award. Pullman's acclaimed trilogy, His Dark Materials has been published in thirty-nine languages.
