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.
The award-winning actor, producer, and quintessential New Yorker shares her reading recommendations and love of libraries.
Known for portraying one of the greatest female characters and fashion icons in American television, Sarah Jessica Parker wears many hats. Her latest role is an off-screen one—she’s parlayed her lifelong love of reading into publishing books under her imprint, SJP for Hogarth.
Parker will speak with Fatima Farheen Mirza, the first author to be published by Parker’s imprint SJP for Hogarth. Mirza began A Place for Us as an undergraduate at UC Riverside. The novel was an instant New York Times bestseller and is being translated into eight languages. Mirza is a Teaching Artist through The National Book Foundation’s BookUp program and teaches undergraduate fiction courses at NYU.
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.
