    Epic Histories with Mike Wallace and Nell Irvin Painter

    Tuesday, February 27, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

    Join two renowned American historians for a conversation about the challenges of writing epic narrative histories. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Mike Wallace, author of Greater Gotham: A History of New York City from 1898 to 1919 — his long-awaited sequel to Gotham — sits down with fellow distinguished historian Nell Irvin Painter, author of The History of White People. The two scholars will discuss the relationship between Wallace’s work on New York City history and Painter’s on Southern history.
