Celebrating the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge: A Conversation with Gay Talese

The Bridge - Gay Talese

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the building of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Transit Museum is bringing together two of New York’s finest journalists and authors, Gay Talese and Sam Roberts, to talk about Talese’s book The Bridge. This work, originally published in 1964 when the bridge opened, chronicles the completion of the bridge through its politics, engineering, and intimate human drama. Roberts and Talese will be joined by Joe Spratt, an iron worker whose grandfather worked on the Verrazano-Narrows construction and who Talese featured in his book’s new afterword. Book signing to follow the program.
