Delving into unlikely oases, the legendary Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, who launched the restoration of Central Park in the 1980s and saved it from a state of near ruin , now introduces us to seven remarkable green spaces in and around New York City, giving us the history—both natural and human—of how they have been transformed over time. Copies of her book will be available for signing and sale after the program.

“A gem . . . Distilling a lifetime’s worth of knowledge and insight.” Phillip Lopate, Vanity Fair
