Authoritative, vivid and beautifully photographed, Before Central Park traces “the finest work of art ever executed in this country,” from prehistory, through Indigenous, early European, Colonial, Revolutionary, Civil War and modern eras, with multiple and diverse groups of creatures living alongside each other, sometimes harmoniously and often in conflict. Sara Cedar Miller is the historian emerita of the Central Park Conservancy; she has written three other books about the Park, which celebrates its sesquicentennial this year.

This lecture will be preceded by the Friends of John Jay Homestead Annual Meeting at 6:30pm.

Lecture at 7:00pm, and book signing to follow.
