Join us for a paperback launch and book party celebrating St. Marks is Dead by Ada Calhoun. A New York Times Editors’ Pick, St. Marks Is Dead (W.W. Norton, 2015) is a vibrant 400-year history of the hippest street in America written by a journalist who grew up there. Named one of the best books of the year by Kirkus, the Boston Globe, Orlando Weekly, the New York Post, and the Village Voice.
Ada Calhoun has written for The New York Times, New York magazine, and the New York Post. She is the author of St. Marks Is Dead: The Many Lives of America’s Hippest Street (W.W. Norton & Co., Nov 2015), a “revelatory” (Kirkus), “captivating, multidimensional” (Publishers Weekly) narrative history the Village Voice named the “Best Nonfiction Book About New York.” Born and raised on St. Marks Place, she lives in Brooklyn.
