Please join us this coming Wednesday, April 24th, for our latest author talk with former borough historian John Manbeck. He'll discuss the Brooklyn waterfront's rich history and how its use influenced the development of Brooklyn's industries and communities, from ship-building to ferries, factories, and beaches. The city continues to look for new ways of utilizing the waterfront today with plans under way for new housing, parks, and business projects. Manbeck has written several books on various aspects of Brooklyn history, many of which are available in the Brooklyn Collection.
A wine and cheese reception, as well as distribution of tickets, is at 6:30 p.m. The Brooklyn Collection is located on the 2nd floor balcony of the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. Seating is limited to 40.
