Walking Tour with Colin Jerolmack, Author of The Global Pigeon
Please join us at 6:00pm on Thursday, September 19, for a walking tour of the pigeon-related landmarks of Lower Manhattan led by Colin Jerolmack, author of the new book, A Global Pigeon
. Although dismissed by many as "rats with wings," pigeons are the ultimate urban bird, and, as Jerolmack will show, our interactions with them shape our own experiences and imagination of the city.
From fake hawks to pigeon ladies, and roast squab to rooftop coops, we'll explore the varied and fascinating roles the pigeon inhabits in New York City on this forty-five minute guided walk. Afterwards, we will return to Studio-X NYC for a live interview with Jerolmack, and a chance to learn more about the Million Dollar Pigeon Race, pigeon abduction, and the Turkish pigeons of Berlin. Copies of Jerolmack's book will be available for purchase and signing, thanks to our favorite booksellers, McNally Jackson
The walking tour is limited to 30 participants: RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
to secure your spot. Confirmed participants will receive details of our meeting point.
