Virtual Book Talk: “We Came Here to Shine” Set in 1939 World’s Fair

We Came Here to Shine Book Cover

Join award-winning author Susie Orman Schnall as she talks in-depth about her newly released novel, "We Came Here to Shine." Set during the iconic 1939 New York World's Fair, two intrepid young women--an aspiring journalist and a down-on-her-luck actress--form an unlikely friendship as they navigate a world of endless possibility, stand down adversity, and find out what they are truly made of during the glorious summer of spectacle and opportunity.

Justin Rivers, Chief Experience Officer, will join the author for a virtual look at the remnants of many of the sites mentioned in the book including the Billy Rose Aquacade, the Life Savers Parachute Jump, the Administration Building, the Trylon and Perisphere, the Lagoon of Nations, and more. The talk will wrap up with a Q&A session with the author.
