The Museum at Eldridge is hosting a special Tenement Talk this evening with what looks to be a fascinating panel discussion on the works of Henry Roth, author of the classic novel Call It Sleep. The novel, published in 1934, centers on a young boy growing up on the Lower East Side in the early twentieth century. The event is also a celebration the posthumous publication of Roth’s final novel, An American Type, written toward the end of his life after a decades-long dry spell. Panelists will include Harold Augenbaum, Executive Director of the National Book Foundation, Robert Weil, Executive Editor at Norton, and Willing Davidson, fiction editor at The New Yorker (who is responsible for editing An American Type). Read a NYTimes piece about Roth here and a New Yorker story about him here. FREE // 6:30p // 12 Eldridge St.
