    Bowery Poetry Club & Cafe Book Launch for the Cambridge Companion to the Literature of New York!

    The idea of New York looms large over the landscape of American literature - a towering metropolis, a symbol of transience and mobility, of culture, of urbanism, and of change. From Harlem to the East Village, Times Square to Brooklyn, New York neighborhoods are defined by the different eras, enclaves, genres, and ideas that mark the literary and cultural history of the city. On Sunday, May 2, mark your calendars and save the date for the book launch of the Cambridge Companion to the Literature of New York. Editors Cyrus Patell and Bryan Waterman will be in attendance along with some of our favorite local contributors to commemorate the publication of the first large-scale consideration of New York’s legacy of literature. Please join us at the Bowery Poetry Club and Cafe for an evening exploring and celebrating writers in the city and portrayals of New York across more than two centuries of diverse writing and performance. And now, without further ado, I give you two more contributor profiles from Editors Cyrus Patell and Bryan Waterman, featured on Patell and Waterman’s History of New York. Meet Elizabeth (Betsy) Bradley (author of “Dutch New York from Irving to Wharton") and Melissa Bradshaw (author of “Performing Greenwich Village Bohemianism”).
