Auster on Poe: A Conversation with Paul Auster and Isaac Gewirtz
Award-winning writer Paul Auster (The New York Trilogy, Winter Journal) talks with Isaac Gewirtz, Curator of The Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature, NYPL, and Poe exhibition co-curator, about his life spent reading and rereading the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Auster's first book purchase, at the age of nine, was a Modern Library edition of Poe's poems and stories, and his engagement with Poe has been consistent ever since. Auster will discuss Poe's influence on his own writing, and will revisit a lecture delivered on Poe three decades ago, currently housed with his papers in Berg collection. Co-presented by the Morgan and LIVE from the NYPL.
Thursday, January 16, 2014, 7 p.m.*

Tickets: $25: $15 for for Morgan Members, NYPL Friends, and Seniors and Students with valid ID

*The exhibition Edgar Allan Poe: Terror of the Soul will be open at 6 p.m. especially for program attendees.
