Untapped Cities is excited to host a book party for author Laurie Gwen Shapiro on January 19th 6-8 PM, during the launch week of her highly anticipated first non-fiction book, The Stowaway: A Young Man’s Extraordinary Adventure to Antarctica (published by Simon & Schuster). The Stowaway is a spectacular, true story of a scrappy teenager from New York’s Lower East Side who stowed away on the Roaring Twenties’ most remarkable feat of science and daring: an expedition to Antarctica.
The event will take place at the Untapped Cities offices, inside the historic Starrett-Lehigh Building in Chelsea, a New York City landmark located along the Hudson River. Fittingly, the true story of The Stowaway begins in Chelsea in 1928, where Billy Gawronski swims across the Hudson River to Hoboken and starts his adventure to Antarctica. The Starrett-Lehigh Building would be constructed just two years later.Buy tickets/get more info now
