St. Marks is Dead with Ada Calhoun, Saturday, March 5

You are invited to a private dinner with journalist and St. Marks native Ada Calhoun.

The dinner will be hosted by Deborah Solomon & Kent Sepkowitz on Saturday, March 5th, and will take place at their home on West 81st Street.

Ada will discuss her book, St. Marks is Dead: The Many Lives of America’s Hippest Street, a collection of stories, essays, photos, and personal accounts that document a 400 year history of what is considered one of the most culturally significant streets in the United States.

Praise for St. Marks is Dead: “Ada Calhoun has nailed St. Mark’s Place. With her fluid prose, wide-angle focus, and eye for detail, she brings to life the brilliant tumble of personalities and ephemeral but reverberating events that have marked it since the nineteenth century.” — Luc Sante, author of Low Life

All proceeds will benefit PEN American Center.
