Make the most of your lunch hour and come to The New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Wednesdays for Books at Noon, a series of free midday conversations hosted by Jessica Strand and featuring acclaimed authors. Books at Noon events take place under the center arch in historic Astor Hall, right upon entrance at 5th Ave. An audience Q&A and book-signing will follow each half-hour program. This is a standing room series with a very limited number of seats available for patrons who require seating.
Buy a copy of the featured book at the Library's Shop right after the event, and get it signed!
