GILDED SUFFRAGISTS Author Talk & Cemetery Tour (Books Sold by The Lit. Bar)

In Gilded Suffragists, historian and former journalist, Johanna Neuman excavates the identities of the women on the front lines of the movement to secure women’s right to vote, describes their rivalries for power within the suffrage movement, the debate over chivalry that complicated their mission after the sinking of the Titanic, and their political conflicts during the First World War. Examining the question of motive, Neuman finds that in many other ways – from riding bicycles to pursuing careers, from advocating an end to marriage to an embrace of pacifism – these wives and daughters of the Gilded Age titans of American capitalism -- with names like Astor, Belmont, Harriman and Vanderbilt -- were part of the swirl of change known as modernity.

This author talk will explore the suffrage career of Alva Vanderbilt Belmont, followed by a book signing, and tour of grave site.

THE ART OF STARVING Book Launch (Books Sold by The Lit. Bar)

From the Desk of the Author, Sam Miller:

Join us on July 18th as we celebrate the release of my debut novel from HarperTeen! I'll read from the book, answer questions, sign copies.... maybe share some snacks... maybe welcome some special guests!

Rooted in my own experience as an eating disorder survivor, THE ART OF STARVING is Young Adult/Science Fiction/dark and edgy. Think: gay boy Carrie. A Junior Library Guild selection, it’s gotten starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and Kirkus, who said:

“Matt toes the line between expiration and enlightenment, sparing no detail of his twisted, antagonistic relationship with his body. [His] sarcastic, biting wit keeps readers rooting for him and hoping for his recovery. A dark and lovely tale of supernatural vengeance and self-destruction.” 

Hope to see you there!

THE LIT. BAR will be a vendor at The Bronx Museum Holiday Market on December 10th & 11th (from 11am- 6pm, each day). Our table will be full of indie & mainstream titles; and fun reader, wine, and Bronx-related gift items, including: 

~Adult coloring book created & illustrated by Bronx native and custom cake designer, Melody Velez. 

~We can't sell wine yet; but we'll get close... with umbrellas that come in decorative cases that look like wine bottles.

~"Blind Date with a Book". Pick up a mystery book, gift-wrapped, and tagged with clues, so it can't be judged by its cover.

Learn more about our initiative to bring a bookstore to the Bronx, knock out your holiday shopping, and come support local businesses in the borough! To see a full list of vendors you can visit the Museum website.
