In June of 2019, three well-known, well-read New Yorkers will visit NYPL branches in Staten Island, Manhattan, and the Bronx to speak with audiences about their reading lives and the books that have impacted them across the years.
A master interviewer and morning radio mainstay picks up the microphone to share recommendations and memories of the books that have inspired him throughout his career.
Brian Lehrer is the award-winning host of The Brian Lehrer Show, WNYC Radio’s daily call-in program, covering politics and life, locally and globally. Featuring guests from Barack Obama to Mitch McConnell and Margaret Atwood to Yogi Berra, The Brian Lehrer Show was recognized with a 2007 George Foster Peabody Award for “Radio That Builds Community Rather Than Divides.”
Lehrer will speak with National Book Award Finalist, Karan Mahajan, whose novel The Association of Small Bombs was named one of the “10 Best Books of 2016” by The New York Times. An assistant professor at Brown University, he is currently a fellow at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at The New York Public Library.
Notes from the Reading Life is a program co-presented by the National Book Foundation and The New York Public Library, supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
