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.
