Saving Radio City Music Hall

Rosemary Novellino-Mearns, author of “Saving Radio City Music Hall”

Thursday, December 8 @ 7 pm

The true story of how Radio City Music Hall, Art Deco masterpiece and one of New York City’s iconic tourist attractions and cultural landmarks, was saved from demolition is told at last. Nearly forty years later, Rosemary Novellino-Mearns tells the amazing story of how she motivated a small group of dedicated colleagues, friends, media and political allies to join forces, challenge the Rockefeller establishment and, against all odds, save “the Showplace of the Nation.”

Books will be available for purchase and personalization the evening of the lecture. Registration is required.
