The Other Side of Prospect: A Conversation with Nicholas Dawidoff


Come gather with Nicky as he shares with us how he came to write his latest book, a story about a violent crime and its aftermath, and what this one, brief tragic event can tell us about past and present social conditions in one city neighborhood that uncannily reveal so much about America. Foremost it’s about innocence and experience, the way, if you are born in the wrong American place, your childhood may be transformed by injustice. The Other Side of Prospect was just named one of The New Yorker’s Best Books of 2022 So Far.
