Lit Salon: “Double Click” Book Launch

The Lit Salon: "Double Click" Book Launch

Stream The Lit Salon, an intimate literary salon set to candlelight inside Maison Brooklyn, the townhouse of author and journalist Michelle Young, the founder of Untapped New York! 

About the event:

On March 19, The Lit Salon will feature author Carol Kino, whose book Double Click: Twin Photographers in the Golden Age of Magazines (Scribner) is a riveting biography of identical twin sisters who became groundbreaking photographers in New York during the glamorous magazine golden age of the 1930s and 40s. The McLaughlin twins were trailblazing female photographers, celebrated in their time as stars in their respective fields, but have largely been forgotten since. The virtual audience will have the opportunity to submit questions for the Q&A portion of the event.

Livestream tickets are $10 for the general public, or free for Untapped New York Insiders. In-person tickets can be purchased here. All sales final.

The Lit Salon is produced by Maison Brooklyn, with special partners Untapped New York and Aerangis,
