Book Talk on Wild City: A Brief History of New York City in 40 Animals

Wild City Book Cover

Brooklyn writer Thomas Hynes has written a love letter to the surprising ecological diversity of New York in Wild City, an illustrated guide to 40 of the most well-known, notorious, mythical, and sublime non-human citizens of the five boroughs. You’ll learn surprising new facts in these pages, and you’ll revisit some animals you’re all too familiar with, such as the viral sensation “pizza rat.” An unconventional wildlife guide, a concise environmental history, and a celebration of some of the city’s most surprising residents, Wild City is an enchanting illustrated volume about the infamous and legendary creatures who are as much New Yorkers as their human counterparts. Hynes will do a virtual presentation and then joining Hynes in virtual conversation will be Michelle Young, founder of Untapped New York for the Q&A portion.
