Join us on YouTube Live for a free virtual talk with historian Ben Wilson, author of Metropolis: A History of Humankind’s Greatest Invention, in conversation with Danielle B. Wetmore, the Tenement Museum’s Lead Educator of Specialty Programming.
Guiding readers through a colorful journey through 7,000 years and twenty-six world cities, Ben’s new book shows how urban living has been the spur and incubator to humankind’s greatest innovations. Together, Danielle and Ben will discuss how city living has allowed human culture to flourish, delving into the innovations driven by each civilization: civics in the agora of Athens, peacocking in Belle Époque Paris and the impact of verticality in New York City.Buy tickets/get more info now
