Kickstarter Presents: I Read New York: A Conversation on Creativity

Tuesday August 16: 7:00PM 8:00PM

From xeroxed zines to glossy design tomes, lit journals to sci-fi anthologies, the Publishing community on Kickstarter brings all sorts of creative ideas to life — and on August 16, we’ll be talking about ideas inspired by the Big Apple. Join Margot Atwell (Kickstarter’s Publishing Outreach Lead) and Kickstarter creators Brian Foo (Continuous City), Tim Reitzes (The New York Pizza Book), and Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth (NYC and NASA Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual reprints) for a discussion on the creative process, building community around ideas, and making books in New York City. Stick around for audience questions, bookish conversation, and refreshments.

This event is FREE and open to the public; reserve your spot here. Copies of Continuous City, The New York Pizza Book, and the NYCTA and NASA Graphics Standards Manuals will be available for purchase at the event. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
